2023 Land Trust Learning Series


Join us for a special presentation by Uli Lorimer, author of The Northeast Plant Primer: 235 Plants for an Earth-Friendly Garden and Director of Horticulture at the New England Wild Flower Society.

The presentation will take place on Tuesday, June 13, at 7 pm in the Salem Family Auditorium at the Barrington Public Library. A livestream option is available (see below).

Delaware native Uli Lorimer grew up with an interest in all things green. He’s transformed that passion into a career. If you want a garden that makes a real difference, Uli will help you choose plants native to our Northeast region.

The rewards will benefit you, your yard, and the environment—from reducing maintenance tasks to attracting earth-friendly pollinators such as native birds, butterflies, and bees.

Native plant expert Uli Lorimer makes adding these superstar plants easier than ever before, with proven advice that every home gardener can follow. His new sourcebook includes 235 recommended native trees, shrubs, vines, ferns, wildflowers, grasses, sedges, and annuals. It’s everything you need to know to create a beautiful and beneficial garden.

About Uli Lorimer

Uli Lorimer is Director of Horticulture at the New England Wild Flower Society, a national leader in native plant conservation, horticulture, and education. He oversees both Garden in the Woods, the Society’s botanic garden in Framingham, and Nasami Farm in western Massachusetts, a nursery focused on propagation of and research about New England native plants.

He served as curator of the Native Flora Garden at Brooklyn Botanic Garden for 15 years before joining the New England Wild Flower Society. During his tenure at BBG, Uli tended the original 108-year-old Native Flora Garden and was also instrumental in the creation of a new extension of the garden, which features a native coastal plain meadow and pine barrens. He also worked closely with botanists throughout the region to collect seed from the wild, propagated new plants for the collection, and documented and studied the region’s biodiversity.

Uli is a popular teacher and public speaker and is also a contributing author and photographer for several BBG publications, including Community Gardening, Healthy Soils for Sustainable Gardens, Tough Natives for Tough Places, A Native Plant Reader, Easy Compost, and Edible Gardens.
