Anthony Marinello Gardening for Spring: Ephemerals, Early Bloomers, and Pollinators

LI Hort Members will receive an email with the link to the meeting room.

About the Speaker:

A native of Nassau County, Anthony spent his childhood summers upstate exploring the backwoods and creeks of the Hudson Valley. It is there that he developed an appreciation of nature and yearned to bring a bit of that wildness back to Suburbia. He spent his teenage years researching the wildlife and plants that inhabited the New York Metropolitan area. After High School he studied Biology at Nassau Community College and began gardening with Native Plants. He then continued his studies by earning a Permaculture Design Certificate through the Center for Bioregional Living, headquartered in Ellenville, NY. In 2020, he founded Dropseed Native Landscapes to provide Long Islanders with the guidance and ability to transform their Island into a Native Plant Oasis to sustain both humans and wildlife alike."
