Creating Environmentally Beneficial Landscapes

On Saturday, May 21st, at 10:00 a.m., Retired York County Extension Agent and Senior Extension Agent Emeritus, Jim Orband, will discuss environmentally beneficial landscapes. He will discuss the benefits of incorporating both locally native plants and as well as diverse plantings that provide a variety of food sources for wildlife. Jim also can be heard answering gardening questions with Cathy Lewis on HearSay Public Radio, WHRV-FM, 89.5, on the third Thursday of the month from noon to 1:00 p.m. His Freedom Park presentation is part of the Learn and Grow Educational Series sponsored by the Williamsburg Botanical Garden and will be held in the Freedom Park Interpretive Center. Following the program, master gardeners will be in the garden to answer questions and talk about what's in bloom. The program is free, although a $5.00 donation to help the Garden grow is appreciated. -- For more information, contact Jim at 757-898-9403 or email him at
