Meadows sequester carbon, retain water, filter pollutants, eliminate the need for lawn chemicals, and provide habitat.  Catherine Zimmerman, Meadow Project founder presents a convincing case for Meadowscaping.

In it, Catherine also shows you how to create a beautiful, thriving, low- cost, low-maintenance meadow habitat in your landscape. Catherine’s book, Urban and Suburban Meadows, is a stunning introduction to meadowscaping that inspires readers do away with pesticides, reduce lawns and return their land to a beautiful, natural habitat for native plants and wildlife. It will be available for purchase and signing following the lecture. For more on Catherine’s project, visit themeadowproject.com.
