The Horry County Museum presents a program by Jason Flynn on creating and caring for a multi-species beneficial garden space on March 2nd at 1 PM. With the promise of spring around the corner, now is the time to understand that gardening can provide a multi-layered experience of understanding and growth. Jason will discuss the basics of planning and caring for a native plant garden and an organic vegetable garden. Understanding how these two types of gardens can be inter-designed to benefit not only humans, but also the environment will help provide a deeper understanding of the correlations found in nature that humans are a part of.
Jason Flynn is a horticulturist at Brookgreen Gardens with a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Studies and a lifelong interest in understanding the interconnections found within the natural and manmade world. In addition to creating the South Carolina Geologic Garden at Brookgreen Gardens, he cares for the native garden, a display of plants that grow in the wild of South Carolina, with ecologically friendly practices. Jason also cares for Bethea’s Garden, an organic vegetable garden that utilizes sustainable practices, and has a strong emphasis on educating on the diversity of vegetables grown in the south and their importance to a healthy community and ecosystem.
The lecture will be held in the Museum’s McCown Auditorium located at 805 Main Street, Conway, SC 29526. This event is free and open to the public.
