Residents can learn how to add color to their landscape from master gardener Stephanie Dalton and enjoy a complimentary lunch during Benedictine University’s “Lunch with Landscapers” from 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. on Friday, October 23 on the second floor of the Krasa Student Center. Dalton will help residents choose the right flowering tree or bush for their yards, how to enhance their yards, how to work with what they have and how to add great color in their landscape using flowering trees and shrubs. Dalton has been gardening for more than 25 years and has been a master gardener since 2007. Master gardeners are a group of volunteers trained by University of Illinois educators to provide a network of gardening programs and horticultural activities to educate the public. Dalton earned an associate of applied science in Ornamental Horticulture, a certificate in Nursery and Garden Management, an Associate of Applied Science in Interior Design and an Associate of Arts in Business. She is a design consultant and a tree shrub supervisor at an area nursery. Dalton is also a co-team leader for the Naper Settlement Herb Garden Renovation. The free event is sponsored by the Office of Campus Services at Benedictine University. Space is limited. R.S.V.P. to Liz Hill at ehill@ben.edu or by calling (630) 829-6004.
