County Master Gardener and author Susan Munger will bring the Spring Garden Series at Mystic Seaport to a close Friday, May 15, from 12 - 2:30 p.m. Munger will discuss the ease of creating sustainable gardens and landscapes with the use of rain gardens, a low-maintenance feature of a residential property that allows surface water to return to the underground aquifer without becoming a mosquito breeding ground.
Copies of Munger’s book, Common to this Country: Botanical Discoveries of Lewis and Clark will be available.
The lecture includes lunch at Seamen’s Inne and the opportunity to share gardening secrets and stories with fellow horticulturists.
Tickets are $35 (members: $30). Call 860.572.5339 to register.
