Presentation by our treasurer, Michelle Stoken, for the Penn State Arboretum and our chapter:
THE IMPORTANCE OF NATIVE PLANTS AND NATURAL LANDSCAPING IN THE RESIDENTIAL GARDEN.
Michelle Stoken is a Penn State Extension Master Gardener of Washington County, PA. She is also the Treasurer for the Wild Ones Western Pennsylvania Area Chapter. Michelle has been actively gardening for over forty years. As a vice president of a 25-billion-dollar food distribution company, Michelle traveled 100% and quickly learned that in order to keep her gardens looking healthy and happy she needed to “plant the right plant, in the right place”. The right plants turned out to be native plants that needed little watering, fertilizer or weeding. Michelle and her husband recently purchased 1.3 acres of suburbia. Luckily, they were able to keep many native trees on their property alive through the construction of their home. They are currently converting even more ground to native gardens, natural landscapes and wildlife habitat.
