RESCHEDULED: In Person: Summer Garden Tour: Erin Clancy’s Damariscotta Home

June 21, 2022 @ 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

This summer, Wild Seed Project is inviting you into the yards of our members to see first-hand what biodiversity looks like at home. Our members will share stories about their personal habitat restoration journeys, and the challenges and joys they have encountered along the way as they have tackled invasive plants, experimented with leaving their leaves in place, cut back on mowing, and restored habitat with rich arrays of native plants. Tours will feature urban oases of bustling backyard meadows, neighbors who are working together to transform a suburban neighborhood, pristine coastal landscapes with formal garden plantings, and much more.

Wild Seed Project’s Board Chair Erin Clancy invites you to her coastal Damariscotta home. Erin will show you how she has welcomed biodiversity into her yard in so many ways: from formal native gardens in front of the house, to the addition of spongy natives that absorb stormwater from the road, and even successfully replacing Japanese knotweed with flowering raspberry on a steep slope that goes down to the Damariscotta River.

Parking: Please park either in designated spots along Elm St. or in the free parking lot in the town center and walk to Erin’s home on River Lane.
