Choosing Native Plants for Your Home Landscape ~ Kathy Darrow (Master Gardener and Native Plant Society Member)
November 9 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Choosing Native Plants for Your Home Landscape
Location: WSU Classroom, 121 Oak Bay Road, Port Hadlock
Join Kathy Darrow, Olympic Peninsula botanist and gardener for a presentation focused on how we define the idea of “native plants” as well as lessons learned in the process of establishing native species in her Port Townsend garden. Kathy has been a Jefferson County Master Gardener since 2017. Her background in botany includes an MS in Plant Ecology from Colorado State University, and work as a professional botanist with Grand Canyon National Park, Rocky Mountain Biological Lab in Gothic Colorado, and Arizona State University. She serves on the State Board of Washington Native Plant Society (WNPS) and writes for the WNPS journal, Douglasia. Since moving to Port Townsend in 2016, she has been landscaping on hard packed glacial till at the top of Dundee Hill with the goal of growing as many Pacific Northwest natives as the local deer herd will allow. Kathy will also have native seeds and bulbs from her garden available. .
