This is my first (and maybe last) time to speak in public about my garden. Actually, it is my first time to speak in public about anything, other than work related events.
I was asked to talk about the whys and the hows of my garden. Why I did it, how I did it and how I keep it looking good. I am working on a PowerPoint presentation that will include lots of pictures to will facilitate the discussion. They would like me to speak for 30-40 minutes and have a Q and A session afterwards.
As of today, my presentation is titled: Lawn Free - Landscape With Purpose.
I was working on a theme song to the tune of Born Free, however I have been told that I should stick to the topic and leave out the singing and humor because I am not that good at either.
I stopped by the library yesterday to take a look around. The building is gold level LEED certified. Some are the "green" features are the use of natural lighting and a cistern to capture rainwater for landscape use. I noticed some native plants in front of the building.
If you would like to hear my presentation, it will be this Thursday, July 18 at 7:00 PM in the library auditorium. The auditorium is just to the right as you walk through the front doors.
The library is located at 18505 Midway Road and is easy to get to from the George Bush Turnpike or the Dallas North Tollway.
Let me know if you attend because you read about it here.
Speaking of libraries and native plants, check out the butterfly garden at the Bulverde/Spring Branch Library in Bulverde, TX as featured recently on Central Texas Gardener. This would be a great educational addition to the Timberglen Branch Library.
