April 25 Meeting

Posted at 12:18 pm under Meetings

Our April speaker is Ed Max. Ed Max is a WCGC member and avid organic gardener as well. Ed is also a certified arborist and naturalist and by occupation is a landscape designer- owning and operating Max’s Greener Places, here in the West Chicago / Winfield area. His blog of horticultural
musings can be seen on at his web-site www.Maxlandscape.com.

Ed is passionate about native floral and fauna, and utilizes native species in his design work ,as well volunteering in natural areas on habitat restorations. He advocates for more use of native species- as the populations of both native insects and native flora they depend upon are in dangerous decline.

Ed also leads hikes with Sierra club, and is active with the Ill Native Plant Society.  His talk will be on native wildflowers, and spring colors in the Chicagoland garden and woodlands, including ‘Spring Ephemerals’.  Many of the photos are from his own shade gardens here in West Chicago.
