Dr. Randi Eckel, founder of Toadshade Wildflower Farm, will speak on Native Plants in Landscape Design: Gardening for Beauty and Ecological Impact. Dr. Eckel’s lecture will focus on the many important interactions between native plants and wildlife, while emphasizing the importance of diversity and sustainability. Whether your gardening style is tidy, formal, or natural, says Dr. Eckel, “There’s a native plant for every place.”

Trained as an entomologist, Dr. Eckel started her nursery mail order business when she began wondering where the flowers of her New Jersey childhood had gone. She resolved to grow these plants herself, and make them easier for the general public to find. Toadshade Wildflower Farm now sells plants and seeds for more than 200 perennial natives, including flowers, shrubs, trees, and sedges.
