This new Native Plant Garden highlights the beauty, diversity and cultural significance of native plants and showcases the Garden’s commitment to education and conservation. In this talk, Brady will illustrate the diversity of native plants used in the garden, the selection and enhancement of patterns from nature and the resultant design that engages and inspires visitors to learn more about natural ecosystems and native plants that are suitable throughout the Northeast.  Brady has designed many large-scale public projects in addition to her award winning private gardens.
