Rewilding Series Talks: Transform Your Lawn to Layers

Gilsland Farm 20 Gilsland Farm Rd, Falmouth

In this one hour in-person talk at Gilsland Farm, Anna will guide you in transforming your lawn into three dimensional native plant habitat. Whether you turn your lawn into native groundcovers, meadow, or forest – your landscape will benefit from layers of native plants to create a rich, wildlife-friendly tapestry. About the Rewilding Series: Wild Seed Project’s Pledge to Rewild initiative is a call-to-action, motivating people to plant natives to support bees, butterflies, birds, and other wildlife in order to make positive environmental change in their own communities. Maine Audubon and Wild Seed Project are teaming up to bring you a three-part series that goes in-depth on some of the key concepts of rewilding: transforming your lawn into layers of native plants, adopting mindful landscape practices that benefit wildlife and the planet’s health, and planting native trees that support local food webs.
