TAMWORTH — On Wednesday, May 5, at 7 p.m., the Cook Memorial Library will host "Landscaping with Native Plants," an online program featuring landscape designer Carol Jowdy, who will share an illustrated talk on landscaping with native plants.

An educator at heart, Jowdy includes Green Initiatives and Sustainable Design in her work and inspires clients to pay attention to nature as a model for intentional design. When one mimics native communities, increases plant diversity, and chooses organic practices, gardens require less energy, time and maintenance.

Planting "right plant, right place" can solve storm water concerns, stabilize steep slopes, bring food producing species to your dooryard, provide beautiful outside rooms, and create conditions that support health, happiness and productivity.

This program explores native trees, shrubs and perennials with multiple attributes that promise to bring beauty and satisfaction, more pleasure with less suffering. Find the link to the online program, which will be presented using Zoom, at bit.ly/CMLnativeplants.

Call the Cook Memorial Library at (603) 323-8510 with questions.
