Botany for Gardeners: Plant Survival Strategies
Saturday, April 11, 1-3PM

Instructor: Daphne Minner

In this workshop we will investigate how plants adapt to threats during the growing season such as competition for light, insect pests, and pruning. The basic internal workings of plants will be introduced as a way to better understand garden design, pruning techniques and timing for healthy productive gardens. You will have an opportunity to practice some basic pruning on class specimens.

A lifelong gardener, Daphne has merged her love of plants and science education into botanical education curricula for both children and adults seeking enrichment from non formal organizations like Native Plant Trust, Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University, and Penn State's Shaver's Creek. For more than 25 years, Daphne has worked to improve science and ecology education in both formal K-12 and informal settings. She has developed a certified wildlife habitat in her small urban yard that supports a wide diversity of plant and animal species. Through her careful observation and research, the fascinating relationship between plants and animals are illuminated in her own yard. She holds a certificate in field botany from the Native Plant Trust and a doctorate in Human Development.
