FLOS Presentation: Native Plants and Living Soil and the Joys of Complexity in the Garden In-Person

American gardens are changing. More and more people are planting pollinator gardens, gardening for birds, or are simply adding native plants to their designs. Hear what makes native plants native, why they belong in every garden, and how using them can bring new complexity to your garden and joy to your life. Learn why you should and how you can use these wonderful grasses, sedges, flowers, and shrubs without fear, no matter your gardening style. 


Adrian Ayres Fisher has been enthusiastically gardening with native plants for over thirty years. As a board member of West Cook Wild Ones, she educates about and advocates for native-plant gardening, natural area restoration, and biodiversity. She also serves as volunteer site steward of National Grove Forest Preserve in North Riverside, Illinois, where she manages volunteer restoration projects. Formerly she was a sustainability coordinator at a community college.
