We will be showing excerpts from “Urban & Suburban Meadows: Bringing Meadowscaping to Big and Small Spaces,” a video made by Catherine Zimmerman and produced by The Meadow Project. The video focuses on the diversity of life inhabiting a meadow and the intricate connection between native plants, native insects and soil. The video details the process of making a meadow from site preparation, design, and planting, to annual maintenance. Entomologist Doug Tallemy, and meadow experts Michael Nadeau, Larry Weaner, and Neil Diboll are featured. Following the video club members who have made meadows of their own will share their knowledge and experiences.
