Buncombe County Master Gardener Sheila Dunn started her talk to a packed room of interested gardeners by explaining that no growing system is perfect or completely effortless. After her talk, the locals lined up, interested in whether she had enough free starts of her strawberry plants to give away. With years of experience behind her, she spoke as a friend who sincerely wants to share what she knows to make your life a little easier.
|Sheila Dunn’s Home Landscape Transformation|
Dunn had been asked to speak at the Organic Growers School, where thousands of people gather in the mountains of Western North Carolina each year to learn the latest sustainable growing methods. Dunn had transformed her sloped front yard, typical of the area, into a beautifully landscaped garden with all sorts of pretty, edible plants tucked into it. As she explained, she doesn’t like to grow things in rows.
