POP-UP WEBINAR: The Nibbled Leaf Town Hall: A Garden Conservancy Event

Thu, Sep 1, 2022
1:30 PM- 3:00 PM

This year we rolled out something entirely new for Open Days, the Nature-Friendly Gardens Nibbled Leaf category, and we want your opinions, input, and questions! Please join Page Dickey, Edwina von Gal and Open Days staff Horatio Joyce and Amy Murray for a Town Hall style Zoom. Find out what it’s all about: what we mean by nature friendly, what it takes to “qualify”, why it matters, how we have managed our own challenges, and whatever else is of interest to you. Here’s your chance to chime in.
