SIG-Native Plant Tour of Margot Taylor's Garden
Saturday, May 20, 10:00am
The Taylor residence is the only SITES certified residential property on the east coast and serves as a model for sustainable landscape practices, education and enjoyment.
Leading by example, the Taylor residence uses creative management techniques for soil and water resource, and restoration strategies of native plant communities to support preservation of biodiversity and ecosystem health. A garden map and game lead visitors on a self-paced tour to learn how and where. Artfully and carefully crafted, terraced spaces transform the former dairy farm with steep slopes into a mosaic of garden rooms. Rain water is played and celebrated across the site in a series of aerial and surface features. Historic and construction debris is repurposed in garden sheds, pathways, water channels, bridges, planting beds and walls. Sculptures and art are sprinkled throughout the site and showcased in a Hobbit like straw bale hut.
Registration is required to attend, 40 limit. To register for the garden tour, click here.
Please note: Parking at the garden is limited. We will meet at the nearby Park and Ride, Hockessin Memorial Hall, 610 Yorklyn Rd, Hockessin, DE at 9:45am and carpool to the garden in rural Kennett Square, PA.

We encourage gardeners - from beginners to professionals - to learn more about horticulture and to share their skills, knowledge, and plants with each other. Members gather throughout the year to visit gardens and nurseries in the Delaware Valley. We sponsor plant sales, trips, seminars, and lectures about plants, ecology, design, propagation, and conservation.
