2019 Piedmont Landscape Association Annual Seminar

2019 Piedmont Landscape Association Annual Seminar

Live Events | 02/7/2019 | 8:00AM - 5:00PM

The Piedmont Landscape Association hosts an annual seminar (formerly called the Central Virginia Landscape Management Seminar) every February. This event strives to bring gardening enthusiasts and landscape professionals together in an educational setting.


John Lonsdale
Lecture (Morning): Woodland Treasures

John will discuss a selection of the many rare, unusual and beautiful woodland plants which he grows at Edgewood in Pennsylvania. The presentation will highlight genera including Trillium, Galanthus, Cyclamen, Corydalis, Hepatica, Erythronium, Epimedium and Arisaema, members of which are suitable for a variety of conditions from dry shade to vernally moist sunlit woodland edges.

Teri Dunn Chace| Author and Lecturer
Lecture (Morning): Seeing Seeds: A Journey into the World of Seedheads, Pods and Fruit

Teri’s talk finds strangeness and fascination in the seeds of plants as familiar as oaks and dandelions, and as curious as figs and hellebores. View the gorgeous photographs by Robert Llewellyn (she will explain his “image-stacking” technique).

Kimberly Eierman
Lecture (Afternoon): Dealing with Climate Change in Your Landscape

Climate change is here and it is impacting our landscapes – increased flooding, more frequent droughts, more extreme weather events and increasing temperatures.  Want to help fight climate change at home?  Kimberly will discuss how the plants you choose and the landscape practices you use can help reduce the impacts of climate change and improve the environment around you.

Brie Arthur | Lecturer
Lecture (Afternoon):  The Foodscaspe Revolution- Foodscaping with Natives

Brie taps into her more than a decade worth of experience as a grower and propagator to discuss how the use of native edible plants in the landscape can aid in ecological restoration. She will explore how this type of purposeful design coupled with adaptive management practices is more important than ever as concerns of climate, water quality, and invasive plants increase.
