“Trees of Our Lives: Small Native Trees for the Landscape” – Dawn Hines, Master Gardener This presentation includes many photographs showing all aspects of tree care: choosing, planting, pruning, and the danger of non-native invasives (or exotics) to our landscapes and native areas.

“English Gardening through the Ages – Ideas for your Atlanta Garden” – Averil Bonsall, Master Gardener Coordinator for DeKalb County Come and hear about the different styles of gardens as they developed over the years in England, and get ideas about how you can use these same styles in your garden in the Atlanta area. Averil will show a lot of pictures of English gardens, including some from family gardens not open to the public.

Dawn is a DeKalb Master Gardener who began her gardening journey at a very early age. She spent the first 12 summers of her life playing among her grandmother’s gardens and listening to her grandmother’s dramatic readings. Today her love of the garden, enhanced by her love of the stage, encourages her to add to her collection of garden speeches.

Dawn encouraged and lead the creation of the Tucker Butterfly Garden on LaVista Rd in 2008 as a new DeKalb County Master Gardener Project. Dawn’s latest project is a Butterfly Presentation and Tour for Preschoolers.

Averil is a life-long English gardener who brought her love of gardening to Stone Mountain some thirty years ago. She now lives in Stone Mountain Village, and she and her husband are developing an English-style garden around their old bungalow and front porch! She also helps to maintain the Village Community Garden.
