Jeanne McRightGuest Speaker: Jeanne McRight

Topic: Low Maintenance Boulevard Gardens

 

Attendees of tonight’s presentation will learn how to replace high-maintenance turf with drought-proof, salt-resistant, no-mow boulevard gardens. With a focus on benefits provided by beautiful native plants, Jeanne McRight’s key message is that if we grow flowers instead of grass, we can sit back and enjoy the results! Her presentation includes plant selection, design, installation and care.


Master Gardener Jeanne McRight is Founder and President of Blooming Boulevards (www.BloomingBoulevards.org), Mississauga’s exciting new environmental organization promoting native plant boulevard gardens for pollinators. Jeanne is a professional artist-educator, a Director for the Cloverleaf Garden Club, and a passionate and award-winning advocate for environmentally sustainable horticultural practices.
