ROSMARIE LOHNES

President, CEO and Designer

HELPING NATURE HEAL              Check out     helpingnatureheal.com

Her topic is PLANTING YOUR ECO LANDSCAPE

 

Whether you are planting a pollinator meadow, planning and planting food gardens, using native and heritage plants, shrubs and trees or dealing with coastal erosion, Rosmarie will share her techniques and help you map out a plan to get you started. Bring your notebooks and questions.

 

Rosmarie first helped to grow food gardens as a small child, looking to nature for play, interest, and understanding. She has a B.A. in Conservation and Environmental Studies from York University with prior studies in Architectural Design, and further training in Horticulture as Therapy, Ecological Landscape Design, Shoreline Erosion, Master Gardener and Landscape Management.

She came to Nova Scotia’s Windhorse Farm in 1999 to do an internship in Ecological Forestry and Organic Gardening and fell in love with the fact that you could be in the forest and near the ocean at the same time.  After her internship she decided to stay in Bridgewater, but could not find a job in her field, so she began gardening to support herself and after a year decided to start her own business; Helping Nature Heal was born. They are an award-winning company with 20 years experience restoring ecosystems and helping inspire people to connect with nature.  They envision a world where all people realize their deep interconnection with the earth and they possess both the knowledge and capacity to dig deep for ecological solutions to remediate human impacts while creating resilient, sustainable communities.

Guests and new members are very welcome.  

 

Donations to the FOODBANK are appreciated. Only monetary donations for the Food Bank will be accepted -- no food items. Please place your cheque or cash in a sealed envelope and drop in the separate receptacle located in the Sanctuary.
