Cook Memorial Library to host ‘Landscaping with Native Plants’ May 5 | Organizations/Clubs

TAMWORTH – On Wednesday, May 5th at 7:00 pm, the Cook Memorial Library is hosting “Landscaping with Native Plants,” an online program with landscape architect Carol Jowdy giving an illustrated talk on landscaping with native plants.

Jowdy is an educator at heart and includes green initiatives and sustainable design in her work. It inspires customers to view nature as a model for deliberate design. By mimicking native communities, increasing plant diversity, and opting for organic practices, gardens require less energy, time, and maintenance.

Planting the “right plant, the right place” can solve rainwater problems, stabilize steep slopes, bring food-producing species into your door, create beautiful outdoor spaces, and create conditions that promote health, happiness, and productivity.

This program explores indigenous trees, shrubs and perennials with multiple attributes that promise beauty and satisfaction, more pleasure with less suffering. The link to the online program, which is displayed with zoom, can be found at

Call the Cook Memorial Library at (603) 323-8510 with any questions.
