I have elephants tracking up the grass. MY cats weigh over 300 pounds. And where do they sit?…Come learn about the challenges of Zoo horticulture and take away some practical techniques and tips that work for gardeners who don’t have elephants in their garden…or 500,000 guests a year, either. Our speaker, Marie Mims Butler, took a degree from NC State University involving floriculture and landscape design. Her teaching experience in vocational horticulture and in Japanese flower arranging, a little State Department diplomacy, and the expense of four private tuitions served to land Marie Mims Butler in the Virginia Zoo. Sixteen years later, she is the Landscape Coordinator for this 53-acre, beautifully landscaped zoo in Norfolk, VA. She shares her earth-friendly practices with over 400 wild animals and even more wild children and adults.This talk is hosted by the Silver Spring Garden Club. Doors open at 7:30pm. This event is Free. It is open to the public.For directions: http://www.montgomeryparks.org/brookside/
