Native plants are beautiful, low maintenance, ecologically beneficial, and bestow a distinct sense of place to cultivated landscapes. This class will guide students in planning a native garden to serve pollinators. Native plant sourcing, propagation, and options for various site conditions will be discussed.


Sarah Coury co-owns Saturnia Farm in Haywood County, which specializes in holistic production of perennials, natives plants and cut flowers. She helps manage several large gardens in Asheville, and formerly worked as a horticulturalist at TNCA. Sarah's background is in wildlife conservation, and her passion is creating multi-use garden spaces that provide both high habitat value for native plants and animals, and the healing qualities of beauty for people.
