Join the Winnebago County Master Gardeners on Saturday morning, March 28 for a fascinating look at how you can use Native Perennials in your garden. Natives are good for the environment, encourage pollinators and provide food for many birds and insects. They are drought and disease resistant and don’t need fertilizer. Featured speakers are Justin Kroening from Stone Silo Prairie Gardens in DePere and Loris Damerow, Landscape Designer and Civic Gardening Coordinator.

Justin has owned Stone Silo since 2004 and he and his nursery are committed to the preservation of native species and encourage their use in landscape design. Justin will discuss a selection of native plants and how native cultivation may vary from non-native perennials.

Loris Damerow is a former Master Gardener and has served as past President of the Wild Ones, Fox Valley Chapter. Wild Ones promotes the use of native plants in home and civic landscaping.

The program will start at 9AM and run until 12 noon at the Coughlin Center, 625 E. County Rd. Y in Oshkosh.

The cost is $5 in advance, $10 at the door and includes light refreshments.
