Class: Why Mulch When You Can Plant

June 6 @ 9:30 am EDT - 12:30 pm EDT

Mulch can help control weeds, prevent soil erosion, and maintain soil nutrients. Yet for every advantage that mulch offers, well-chosen plants are even more effective! From groundcovers to larger mat-forming species, there is a plant for every mulch scenario. Join Dan Jaffe, photographer and author of Native Plants for New England Gardens, to learn about the myriad of plants that can take the place of mulch on your landscape.
Co-sponsored by New England Wild Flower Society.

Instructor: Dan Jaffe is the propagator and stock bed grower at New England Wild Flower Society (NEWFS) in Framingham, Massachusetts. He earned a degree in botany from the University of Maine and an advanced certificate in Native Plant Horticulture and Design from NEWFS. After interning at Garden in the Woods, Dan worked for a year as Plant Sales Coordinator at the Garden.

Class Fee: $40 (Member)    $48 (Nonmember)
