Join us in July for a tour of Terri and Randy Litchfield's 1.3-acre property in Delaware County. Featured in Ohio Magazine, the Litchfield's yard, which now hosts roughly 275 native species, serves as a native plant demonstration garden for the Delaware County Master Gardeners and for the public. In 2023 they launched a blog and website devoted to their garden: Catchfly Commons.
Parking is next door at 667 Bunty Station Road. Signs and a greeter will guide you to a parking spot.
Host bio: Terri and Randy Litchfield's interest in gardening stems from a more general appreciation of nature. They learned about native plants from attending sustainability conferences and simple living festivals in the 80's and early 90's. In 2001 they moved to Delaware to a home with a sunny backyard, much of which was a blank canvas. They both became Delaware County Master Gardener Volunteers. Terri proposed and then chaired the Native Plant Propagation Project, which in 2021 won the Ohio Outstanding Large Master Gardener Volunteer Project Award. One of Randy's hobbies is macrophotography, and this has been a good way to document the insect visitors to the garden.
