Croton Arboretum

The Arboretum and the Croton Free Library are cosponsoring Gardens Filled with Life: Designing with Northeastern Flora, a presentation by author and landscape designer Carolyn Summers. Carolyn will offer striking garden designs that use native plants and will reveal the many ways indigenous plants support the food web and create a healthy, sustainable landscape. Her designs feature underutilized and uncommon native plants that beautifully replace traditional invasive exotics. Currently a professor at Westchester Community College, Carolyn Summers is the author of Designing Gardens with Flora of the American East (Rutgers University Press, 2010). Friday, May 20, at 7:30 p.m. Free admission.
