This lecture will share how layering a garden works to serve our needs as well as the needs of pollinators and other creatures. Whether gardening in a close-knit neighborhood or a sprawling estate, learn to garden efficiently, prolifically, sustainably and beautifully while making smart choices and conserving resources. This lecture by Tovah Martin will share innovative ideas, addressing all of the points on a gardener’s checklist. Layering a garden maximizes space and creates hardworking habitats. In her garden, called Furthermore, Tovah creates layers everywhere, including the perennial, berry and vegetable gardens. The result is visually fulfilling, low maintenance, and mulch-eliminating.
