Mike Berkley @ Cullowhee Native Plant Conference: Session 2

July 16, 2021 @ 2:15 pm - 3:15 pm CDT

A fabulous way for those who have always wanted to attend but couldn’t get away and it’s only $75 ($99 gets you the t-shirt which is pretty great).

Session 2 @ 2:15pm

Has your yard been reported city codes or your HOA because it’s a hot mess?  Not all native gardens are wild and wooly.  Join Mike as he shows you how to use native plants in a beautifully designed landscape.  It’s all about Right Plant Right Place.

What is the Cullowhee Native Plant Conference?

The purpose of the Cullowhee Conference is to increase interest in and knowledge of propagating and preserving native southeastern plant species in the landscape. Past participants of the conference have included landscape architects, commercial nursery operators, garden club members, botanists, and horticulturists from state highway departments, universities, native plant societies, botanical gardens, and arboretums. Both professionals and laypersons will gain valuable knowledge from the informative field trips, lectures, and workshops.

The program schedule allows for informal sessions where participants can exchange ideas. We encourage you to make good use of this opportunity. Information and materials can be displayed and exchanged in each residence hall lobby. Please bring materials you wish to share.

The conference is held at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, North Carolina. Cullowhee is located between the Great Smoky and Blue Ridge mountains, approximately fifty miles west of Asheville. Close to both the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Cullowhee is in an ideal location for anyone with an interest in nature.
