Learn about using plant associations like meadows, woodland gardens, rock gardens, and rain gardens when gardening with natives at home from Andrew Kirkpatrick of the Schuylkill Center. Discussion will include planting species that have similar cultural requirements like light, moisture, and soil type.

Andrew Kirkpatrick is the Manager of Land Stewardship at The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education, a 340 acre nature preserve in Roxborough, Philadelphia. He cares for the health of the landscape and also runs the native plant nursery and greenhouse.
