Weavers Way Sustainability Workshop: Permaculture, Native & Invasive Plants: Building Resilience, Diversity & Opportunity

Thursday, August 31, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Permaculture provides us an opportunity to look at our landscapes and the native plant movement with fresh eyes. How can the native plant and permaculture movements inform and enrich each other? How can we add more natives to our diet? Is the real world so simple as “good guys and bad guys”? Must we be at war with invasive plants? Why are they moving and taking over so fast? Can we be a civilization of stewards and gardeners?
Hear about all this and more from the incredibly knowledgable and inspirational Dale Hendricks, founder of Green Light Plants, LLC. Dale has been growing and propagating plants professionally since 1975 when he was fortunate to be employed at Green Leaf Enterprises in Lancaster, PA. In 1988 he co-founded North Creek Nurseries, Inc along with current owner Steve Castorani in order to propagate and grow perennials and grasses with an emphasis on natives and garden selections of natives. In 2009 he founded Green Light Plants, LLC. to consult on carbon friendly and regenerative landscapes; growing native, woodland and permaculture plants regeneratively, organically and joyfully. Dale lives in Landenberg, southern Chester County, PA with his family where he gardens, propagates plants, and works on rewilding- growing the productivity, diversity, capacity and resilience of the land.
