Come and learn the joy of Perennial Gardening.
Perennials are at the heart of permaculture. They offer a luxury of planting once and living for two years and often times infinitely. There are many benefits to perennializing your gardens such as: less work, less maintenance, and once established they also need less care.
Join Chowgene Koay (an avid permaculturist) of East Fort Worth Montessori and Botanical Research Institute of Texas while he presents a very practical and informative presentation on gardening with perennial vegetation for the DFW/North Texas climate.
More about Chowgene:
An active gardener and educator at East Ft Worth Montessori Academy, Chowgene grew up in the suburban area of Arlington, Texas for the majority of his life in a family of doctors and nurses. Curious about the medical field, he journeyed to Austin, Tx to study Biomedical Engineering at the University of Texas. He boldly aspired to make a cure for cancer. As his studies progressed, he became exhausted by the degree program and ventured into gardening to ease his mind and cultivate an area that he was truly interested in. This endeavor led him to Sunshine Community Gardens were he met Theron Beaudreau, learned about permaculture and food forestry, and from that point on Chow has continued learning and gardening with nature. Although he's not practicing medicine or making drugs, his quest to cure human ailments and diseases has led him to the right job, gardening.
