Lawns consume tremendous amounts of resources. Meadows repair soil and prevent erosion, are drought resistant, support abundant wildlife species and even provide edible and medicinal plants. Meadows provide diversity, and that diversity contains a sophisticated set of checks and balances that create and embody holistic relationships among its components.

This program will focus on easy steps to turn a portion of lawn into wildflower landscape as well as edible and medicinal meadow plants.

Judith Dreyer is a Master Gardener and the author of At the Garden’s Gate, her journey in growing sustainable backyard meadow, following a Medicine Wheel of truths while working with nature.
