    For this year’s symposium, Larry will deliver his lecture “Planning for the Unplanned: Integrating Ecological Restoration Techniques and Landscape Design”:

    Using native plants is increasingly accepted in landscape architecture and design. Knowing how to incorporate and work with the ecological patterns and processes associated with native plants, however, is less well understood. Explore ways of integrating ecological restoration techniques and traditional design aesthetics to achieve beautiful, diverse landscapes for varied situations—from small gardens to large, multi-acre projects.

    The Massachusetts Gardening Symposium is an annual fall event presented by the Massachusetts Master Gardener Association (MMGA). In keeping with their mission to engage and educate their members and the public about gardening and horticulture, the Symposium is open to gardeners of all levels, novices to Master Gardeners.
