The Darien Nature Center is pleased to announce a new gardening series starting this fall and continuing through the winter into spring. We will be joined by master gardener, Eve Mauger, and by native plant and composting enthusiast, Deepika Saksena, as we explore everything from pruning, planting, the benefits of native species, and what to do with those pesky weeds! “Adding native plants to your garden can have remarkable results — adding beautiful color and texture, simplifying care, and attracting birds, butterflies and pollinating bees,” said Mauger, who will be leading the series. “We also want to share tips on gardening basics and composting that every level of gardener can benefit from. Mostly, we will have fun in the garden and learn from each other as we share knowledge and experience.”

All classes will run from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and topics will include:
