Steve Windham—What is your gardening why?

(7 p.m.--welcome early to say hello)
Event Sponsor: Triad Chapter

Rhododendron periclymenoides, pinxterbloom azalea, by Steve Windham

Steve Windham, local landscape designer and nature lover discusses the inspirations for his landscape designs, using native plantings, and natural settings for friends, family, and wildlife to enjoy. What inspires you to toil in the garden?  Why?  Is it memories of a special person, place or time?  Fascination with birds, bees, butterflies?

Join Steve in an informal talk about his experience and how he is transitioning his gardens to include a great deal of diversity and more native plantings that are successful here in the Piedmont of North Carolina.

Root and Branch Gardens

Steve is a North Carolina native with 40 years of Landscape Design experience. He obtained a degree in Horticulture from Central Piedmont Community College; has studied Biology, Botany and Environmental studies at Guilford College; and is a Certified NC Plantsman. Steve has volunteered with Greensboro Beautiful, formerly serving as the Chairman and Chair of Public Gardens.

Join us Wednesday, October 2nd, 7 p.m. at the Kathleen Clay Edwards Library, 1420 Price Park Dr, Greensboro, NC 27410 (phone 336-373-2923). All are welcome, though of course we hope you’ll be inspired to join the NCNPS and support efforts to plant more natives and wildlife habitat!

Attendees often arrive a little early to chat and check out door prizes or books. We don’t always have these, but often do. Feel free to bring a native plant to share or save it for fundraisers at the spring and fall outings, or our annual picnic in June. Funds raised support native plant research mini-grants or scholarships to attend the wonderful Cullowhee Native Plant Conference in July.
