Today’s guest on Grow! with Katie is Kelly Norris, the Director of Horticulture and Education at the Greater Des Moines Botanical Gardens.
The Greater Des Moines Botanical Gardens is a vibrant, seven-acre public garden in the heart of downtown Des Moines, providing an enduring guest experience through progressive design, innovative programming and dynamic exhibits.
They have a blog with plant care, cleanup, propagation and so much more! Check it out here.
The team over at the gardens worked together to come up with some great games and activities for kids and families to do together. These can be found on their Activities and Resources page.
Kelly Norris, the Director of Horticulture and Education at the gardens,
His new book, New Naturalism: Mastering the Art of Designing and Planting Resilient Home Gardens, he shares his inspiring, ecologically sound vision for home gardens created with stylish yet naturalistic plantings that mimic the wild spaces we covet, such as meadows, prairies, woodlands, and streamsides—far from the contrived, formal, high-maintenance plantings of the past.
Kelly has his own website dedicated to his garden, the Three Oaks Garden.
