Birdscaping: Home Sweet Habitat

Birdscaping: Home Sweet Habitat with Joan Butler.  This beautifully illustrated program explores the importance of creating welcoming habitats for birds through thoughtful landscape choices, including native plants vital for food and nesting sites. Learn about the benefits and joys of creating beautiful layered gardens designed to bring avian performers right into your own backyard.    Registration is required for this Zoom program.

Joan Butler has been an enthusiastic gardener and plant collector for over 35 years, and believes gardens should invite you to linger in the world outside your door. The gardens on her half-acre suburban property have been included on several garden tours and feature exciting plant combinations, dramatic horticultural specimens, and extensive collections of native plants, hosta and epimedium. Joan has a deep and fundamental interest in the natural world. She holds a BA in Geology from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and a Certificate in Landscape Management from UMass Extension Green School. She is a Master Gardener, a horticulturist at Weston Nurseries, and is a past Chairman of the Massachusetts Landscape Design Council. She is a member of the Garden Consultants Council, the New England Hosta Society and is an accredited Flower Show Judge. Joan has presented programs at flower shows in Massachusetts and Connecticut, and at numerous garden clubs, horticultural societies and professional organizations.

Life and Times of St. Patrick

On St. Patrick's Day, Irish native and historian Sean Murphy joins us to examine the history of Saint Patrick’s mission in Ireland in the 5th century, and the work he carried out. Saint Patrick arrived in Ireland at a crucial time in world history-the Roman empire was collapsing, and Ireland was reorganizing after the assassination of its High King.  He returned to Ireland as a bishop in his mid-forties, and spent twenty-five years ministering to the existing Christian community in Ireland. His mission played a large part in expanding the Catholic influence in Ireland.  Registration is required for this virtual program via Zoom

Sean Murphy was born and raised in Dublin, and came to Cape Cod in 2005. He has a passion for his homeland, and loves to share his knowledge and interest through classes and workshops. He is a teacher of Irish history, music and dance.
