The Glen Arbor Arts Center welcomes Brian Zimmerman, a third-generation landscaper from Traverse City, to discuss ways to bring more color to home gardens with native plants and pollinator-friendly blooms. Color In The Garden takes place Sunday, January 19, 2 pm in the GAAC gallery.
Native plant are those that occur naturally in a region in which they evolved. They are central to the health and welfare of birds and pollinating insects as well as the human habitat. Brian Zimmerman has built his practice around a passion for plants native to Michigan. He is the owner of the native-plant focused Four Season Nursery in Traverse City. During this conversational presentation, Brian will talk about how he uses native and pollinator-friendly plants in his designs, and how home gardeners can begin to explore this rich source of native color.
Color In The Garden is a free presentation offered in conjunction with the GAAC exhibition COLOR, January 10 through March 26. The GAAC is located at 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor. For more information go to GlenArborArt.org, and click on EVENTS
