Join us for a tour of the Marsolo's yard! Their yard is a standard quarter acre but includes many native plants and interesting features such as bog areas, ponds, troughs, crevice rock gardens and hardy cacti. There will be maps posted to help visitors identify the native plants in each area.
Host bio: David Marsolo has been a Wild Ones member since 2002. His yard is basically a collector's garden that has evolved over 40 years. There are many natives of the Eastern and Central US. The Marsolo's have also been working to lessen their environmental impact by reducing the area of lawn to mow, composting, growing an organic vegetable garden, and rainwater run-off use. Recently they installed 16 solar panels which meets all their electric needs in the home as well as power an electric vehicle.
