Native Plant Society - Native Meadow

Wednesday, September 13, 2017 | 7:30pm - 9:00pm


Geoff Shaw will join us at our September meeting to talk about how a landowner can create a native meadow in their own yard. Geoff will cover lessons learned from his experience earned as a Project Coordinator for J.W. Townsend Landscapes. He will address soil preparation, seeding, species selection, and some funding options. Geoff originally hails from Maine and holds a degree in Agribusiness and Resource Management from the University of Maine in Orono. Since moving to Charlottesville in 2004, he has worked on and managed fine properties and estates throughout Albemarle County. Geoff has a class A CDL, is a VNLA certified horticulturist and holds a pesticide applicator certification.
