      EVENT DETAILS
      Conservation Landscaping Committee Meeting

      Join our committee if you are interested in community landscaping, gardening
      and learning about native plants. We’ll be working in the gardens and on
      programs to support healthier landscaping and environment in our community.
      Many projects have already been done and we have more to do.

      What is Conservation Landscaping?
      In short, it means using Virginia native plants for Piedmont Region, conserving water, creating
      plant diversity, improving wildlife habitats and Integrated Pest Management (IPM) while
      beautifying the areas around us.
      As part of our responsibilities, we will participate in rejuvenation and replanting projects
      throughout the community and prepare recommendations to the Board of native plant
      selections, to be integrated with ongoing landscaping projects.

      Ready to start working on your garden with native plants? We got you covered too!
      One of our Committee members is also a landscape designer specializing in native plants.
      There will be workshops, first one next spring on practical information for what to plant, and
      where. Shady, sunny, dry or wet spots, rabbits and deer problem? Yes, we have experienced
      those challenges and will be sharing them with you! How about seeing some of these plants
      growing right here in Broadlands? Yes, there are demonstration gardens too!

      Monthly meetings are planned to start on Tuesday November 13th, 10am and will take place
      every 2nd Tuesday of the month. We will also rotate the times to be during the day and
      evenings to accommodate our residents’ availability. Please check the HOA website for
      additional info or updates. Connect with us on Facebook “Broadlands Naturally” page.
