Landscape Lecture Series

A big part of your household water is used to grow and properly maintain bluegrass lawns that are not sustainable. In an effort to help the Greeley community save water, create natural habitats, use native plants to become more drought resilient, and use less pesticides, the city is presenting the Landscape Lecture Series.

Greeley officials continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation. The health and safety of the community are paramount and continuing to present the lectures through an online-only format helps limit contact and reduce risk of exposure. The live webinars provide attendees with the opportunity to ask questions via the chat option.

March 10 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. | Planning and Planting in Dry Shade

We tend to think about shade plantings in a rich, wet soil planted with ferns, holly, and hostas, but did you know that many low water plants will thrive in dry soils under tree canopies and on the north side of a building? Amy Lentz, CSU Extension Horticulture Agent for Weld County, will lead you in a class to help make good plant decisions, whether you have deep shade, dappled, or moving shade.

March 24 at 6:00 p.m. | Grouping your Plants for Compatibility and Style

Do you want to learn more about how to group your plants for beauty and affect, keeping in mind their water need, soil, and exposure? And what does it mean to hydrozone your plants? Ross Shrigley, Executive Director for Plant Select will help you become a plant selection pro. He will show you how to group them based not only on environmental conditions but how they can complement each other in the garden.

April 7 at 6:00 p.m. | People and Pollinators Network

Beth Conrey, beekeeper, business woman and past president of both the Colorado and the Northern Colorado Beekeeping Associations, will speak about the importance of bees and creating policies at the state and local level to increase habitat, improve land management practices and reduce pesticide use, to protect pollinator health. Since the challenges faced by biodiversity loss call for strategic action at all levels, Beth will give examples of actions and ways to that can result in wins for Colorado people and pollinators. Beth will also let us know about the People and Pollinators Network initiative.
