April 27 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Flex your green thumb this summer by creating a small, wildlife-friendly oasis for your patio, balcony, or porch using locally-adapted native plants. Duncan will present the basics of planting and maintaining a container garden, from container selection and potting mixes to fertilization and watering requirements. He will also create a small container garden that a lucky member of the class will take home with them!


Duncan Himmelman, Ph.D., earned his doctorate at Cornell University and taught horticultural science at the college level for 24 years. He recently retired as the Education Manager at Mt. Cuba Center, a public garden in Delaware devoted to native plant advocacy. He continues to enjoy teaching, designing landscapes, and promoting ecologically focused gardening practices.
