 “Natives, Invasives, and Introduced Plants – Making Gardens a Little Wilder” 


The program given by Tom Palmer, a Milton resident,  is a naturalist/photographer, botanist and wetlands ecologist. He has been documenting local plants for decades.  Palmer is a former board member and president of the Friends of the Blue Hills and currently manages Willet Pond for the Neponset Watershed Association.  Palmer focused on plants in the Quincy area that are appropriate to grow in our home gardens. 


We would like to thank our head hostess, Jackie Ryan and her assistants for the wonderful desserts and to the members who participated in the seed swap and horticultural exhibit.
