Walking Workshop - Goodly Gardens:

Native Ornamental Grasses

Make your home garden meadow more authentic with native ornamental grasses. Native grasses can provide season-long beauty as they mature over time; they are stunning en masse, full of animation and emotion, truly a pleasure to behold. In addition to their unique ornamental features, these grasses can provide structural support for wildflowers, help native insects and other wildlife to thrive, and provide seeds for birds. Visit Goodly Gardens in Worcester, PA to see many native ornamental grasses and to discuss design considerations for your home garden.

This will be a casual, up-close walking tour of Thom Mrazik’s naturalistic Goodly Gardens, a PHS Blue Ribbon Award-winning home garden, as well as a Penn State Extension-certified pollinator- and watershed-friendly garden.
