Teri Dunn Chace
| Author and Lecturer Lecture (Morning): Seeing Seeds: A Journey into the World of Seedheads, Pods and Fruit
Teri’s tour finds strangeness and fascination in the seeds of plants as familiar as oaks and dandelions, and as curious as figs and hellebores. View the gorgeous photographs by Robert Llewellyn (she will explain his “image-stacking” technique). Kimberly Eierman Lecture (Afternoon): Dealing with Climate Change in Your Landscape
Climate change is here and it is impacting our landscapes – increased flooding, more frequent droughts, more extreme weather events and increasing temperatures. Want to help fight climate change at home? Kimberly will discuss how the plants you choose and the landscape practices you use can help reduce the impacts of climate change and improve the environment around you. Brie Arthur
| Lecturer Lecture (Afternoon): The Foodscaspe Revolution- Foodscaping with Natives
Brie taps into her more than a decade worth of experience as a grower and propagator to discuss thoughtful design and the management of landscapes; how they are more important than ever as concerns of climate, water quality and invasive plants increase. The use of native plants as foodscape will also be discussed. To learn more about the speakers and their lecture topics visit www.piedmontlandsacpe.org for details.
