February 22 - Rebecca Finneran - Greening the Garden...a Smart Gardener's Journey
If you love plants and garden design, but find yourself making resolutions to "green your garden," don't assume that all things beautiful must be put out to pasture. By harnessing "Smart Gardening" ideas, you can have beautiful gardens that are environmentally savvy and "smart!" During Finneran' s presentation you will get ideas for plants and design that are water smart, pest free, and low input!

Rebecca received a Bachelor of Science in Horticulture with emphasis in Landscape Design from Michigan State University. She has been serving Michigan as MSU Extension Horticulture Educator since 1987, where she helps the green industry and consumers learn about horticulture, our environment, and pesticide safety. Finneran teaches and sponsors numerous consumer horticulture programs across the state and is a prolific writer. Finneran is currently overseeing an urban display garden in Grand Rapids known as the "Grand Ideas Garden" located at MSU Extension at 775 Ball Ave. NE.

Education Credit Hours: 2
