Restoring Maine's Meadows Workshop
with Heather McCargo
Meadows are beautiful and dynamic landscapes that support a wide variety of plants, pollinators, birds and other wildlife. In the last half century in New England, meadows have lost a huge diversity of native plant species with the loss of rural pastures and the expanded mowing brought on by tractor mowers. In this class, we will explore how to create and manage a meadow that supports native plant species. Join Heather McCargo, Executive Director of Wild Seed Project, to learn what it takes to create a native meadow from scratch, how to diversify an existing meadow, or ways to transition a lawn to a meadow. Bring diversity and beauty back into your landscape a native meadow.
