Workshop – Growing a Prairie Meadow


Kelly Leask – Manager, Prairie Originals


A prairie meadow is a low maintenance landscape feature that is beautiful throughout the whole year and great habitat for birds, butterflies and pollinators. However, there is a little more to it than just scattering a “wildflower” seed mix. Methods, costs and tips for establishing native perennials from seed or started plants will be discussed.


Through working with native plants Kelly has developed an appreciation for the beauty, versatility, utility and importance of wildflowers and prairie grasses in natural settings and ornamental gardens. She is a Master Composter, seed saver, gardening educator, and a member of the board of Gardens Manitoba and Manitoba Communities in Bloom.
