What Native Plants Have Taught Me

Claudia Thompson, Founder & President, Grow Native Massachusetts

Integrating more native plants into our gardens and managed landscapes is today’s
model for being ecologically smart and helping to sustain life for birds, butterflies,
pollinators, and wildlife. But creating a beautiful and vibrant landscape utilizing natives
requires more than simply substituting  indigenous species for our old
favorite horticultural exotics. After a quick refresher about why gardening with native
plants is so important, we will take an in-depth look at the lessons these plants have
taught me over twenty-five years of gardening. This program will reaffirm your commitment to the joy and importance of native plants in our managed landscapes, and give you valuable tips for working with them.

Claudia’s Biography:

Ms. Thompson is the President of Grow Native Massachusetts, an organization that she
founded in 2010 as the culmination of an extensive career in the environmental sector. She
began her career as a teacher and environmental educator. More recently, she served as the
Director of Education for the Appalachian Mountain Club, Director of Drumlin Farm for
Mass Audubon, and as a board member for the New England Wild Flower Society. Her
motivation for starting Grow Native Massachusetts comes from her conviction that the wise
stewardship of our lands begins at home.
