GARDENING GREEN EXPO is Going Virtual!

After careful consideration, the North and South Rivers Watershed Association, WaterSmart South Shore, and Kennedy’s Country Gardens have decided to cancel the Gardening Green Expo on Saturday, March 28. In light of the COVID-19 virus and recommendations from the Corona Virus Task Force of the US Government, and for the safety of our staff, volunteers, speakers and vendors, as well as the general public, the event will now be a virtual event. Thank you for joining us in our efforts to keep everyone healthy and safe.

Kill Your Lawn
Part of our 2020 WaterWatch Lecture Series
Mark Richardson, Tower Hill Botanical Director – According to NASA, in the United States more surface area is covered by lawn than by any other single irrigated crop. Lawns are resource-heavy, requiring irrigation, fertilizer, and pesticides to thrive in our climate. Learn how to replace your lawn with beautiful and environmentally friendly native plantings from Tower Hill Botanic Garden’s director of horticulture Mark Richardson, co-author of Native Plants for New England Gardens, with photographer and author Dan Jaffe. This lecture is sponsored in part by Wild Ones – South Shore MA Chapter.
