Speaker: Katherine Schlosser, author and frequent lecturer on native plants
Katherine will talk about including many NC plants – some familiar and some you may not have thought of – into all sorts of garden areas: Piedmont meadows, hillsides, streamside or shady nooks. She has been cataloguing and championing native plants and knows them better than most anyone in the state.
An author and lecturer, Katherine has served on local and national boards including the Plant Conservation Alliance, the NC Native Plant Society and the NC Plant Conservation Board. She has lectured across the country on a variety of plant topics and was selected to receive the Foster Award for Excellence in Herbal Literature for her book The Herb Society of America’s Essential Guide to Growing and Cooking with Herbs (LSU Press, 2007). She edited the NC Native Plant Society newsletter for many years and is a regular contributor to other publications.
