“Gardening in the Shade,”
A presentation by Monica Buckley and Charlotte Adelman
Sunday, June 10, 2-3PM
Emily Oaks Nature Center
Red Stem Native Landscapes owner and native plant book author Charlotte Adelman will be presenting their newly revised “Gardening in the Shade: transform shady areas into beautiful bird and butterfly habitats,” a free event.
Shady yards present significant challenges, but with the right native plants, they become lovely sanctuaries for people, birds, and butterflies. Charlotte Adelman and Monica Buckley share why we should – and how we can – transform our shady and wooded yards into beautiful and sustainable wildlife habitats.
Charlotte Adelman is the co-author of The Midwestern Native Garden and it’s companion book, Midwestern Native Shrubs and Trees: Gardening Alternatives to Nonnative Species, her newest publication. As part of its Plants for Birds campaign, Audubon Great Lakes urrges Midwesterners to secure a copy of Midwestern Native Shrubs and Trees and put its concepts into practice. Charlotte’s books will be available at the presentation, where she is donating the proceeds to Emily Oaks Nature Center.
Monica Buckley is owner of Red Stem Native Landscapes Inc., a company located in north Chicago that designs, installs, and cares for native plant gardens and landscapes.
