Soon after introductions and light conversation, Claudia West took the stage.
Claudia is the current ecological sales manager at North Creek Nurseries and has just released her new book, "Planting in a Post-Wild World". Her presentation entitled, "Plants that Stand the Test of Time" directed the audience's focus toward discussing the lack of understanding and general oversell of plant communities. Then, she established levels of communities and how to integrate those into your design intentions. Overall, she knocked it out of the park, ending the talk with a Q and A session, which she handled with grace.

"Planting in a Post-Wild World: Designing Plant Communities for Resilient Landscapes" by Claudia West, ecological sales manager, North Creek Nurseries Inc.
We live in a global city and few wild places remain in today's world. Planting designers have the opportunity and responsibility to bring wildness and ecological value back into our landscape. This challenge requires a new form of planting design that works with natural principles and marries horticulture with ecology. Join West to explore how native plants will fit into future landscapes and how plant community-based design strategies can help you meet aesthetic and ecological goals during your next planting project. She is co-author of Planting in a Post-Wild World.

Planting in a Post-Wild World , featuring Claudia West
As urban sprawl has paved its way through the countryside, an abundance of natural landscapes have been replaced with roads, parking lots and buildings. The continued growth of human populations has brought forth a need to incorporate ecological and functional plant communities into the design and planning of living spaces. In this lecture, which is based on the book Planting in a Post-Wild World by Thomas Rainer and Claudia West, Claudia will discuss practical ways to integrate better planting into our communities so that we may again enjoy thriving green living spaces. Claudia will present alternatives to traditional, mulch-based ornamental planting design and explain how to create resilient plantings that function similar to naturally occurring plant communities. Claudia West is the ecological sales manager at North Creek Nurseries, a wholesale perennial grower in Landenberg, PA. Claudia holds a Master's Degree of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning from the Technical University of Munich, Germany. In her current role, Claudia works closely with ecological design and restoration professionals, offering consultation services from initial project planning stages to adaptive management strategies after project completion. Her work is centered on the development of stable, layered planting designs and the desire to bring American native plants back into our landscape.
