Native and Invasive Plants in Your Garden

Discover amazing plants that are native to our region, and learn about the destructive invasive plants causing the most ecological damage today.

This single session features two parts: “the wonders of natives” taught by Ford House’s certified arborist, Joe Cieslinski; and “the 10 worst invaders” taught by Ford House’s woodland specialist, Kevin Drotos.

You will take home a native perennial to plant, list of great plants for your home garden and how to protect our environment from invasive species.

Please dress for the weather. This workshop requires walking through the estate grounds. The workshop is held rain or shine.

Tickets are $30 for Ford House members, $35 for non-members.
