SAN ANGELO – The Concho Valley Master Gardeners, a volunteer organization of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, will conduct a Fall Landscaping Symposium Sept. 22 in the Stephens Central Library Community Room, 33 W. Beauregard Ave. in San Angelo.
Registration will start at 8:30 a.m. and the program will begin at 9 a.m., said Allison Watkins, AgriLife Extension horticulturist in Tom Green County.
“We are very excited about the slate of speakers we have booked for this event,” Watkins said. “They are all innovators, with very different aspects to share when it comes to responsible landscaping through use of design, native plants and naturalized heirloom varieties. With the water situation we are in now, the information they have to share may be very crucial to having a beautiful landscape in the very near future.”
The symposium topics and speakers include:
– Residential Landscape Design Principles, Tony Huston, owner of A.G. Huston Landscape Architecture, San Angelo.
– Eco-Logical Approach to Creating Outdoor Living Spaces for Responsible Beauty, Bill Neiman, owner, Native American Seed, Junction.
– The Bulb Hunter: A Story of Seeking Out Botanical Treasures, Chris Wiesinger, owner, The Southern Bulb Company, Mineola.
