Despite the fact that many cosmopolitan plant species have a reputation for choking out native plants and thus providing inferior habitat for native fauna, labeling any living organism—plant or animal—as “invasive” is not entirely uncontroversial. After all, every so-called invasive plants is a native species somewhere, and it’s not their fault that human-driven globalization has set up the perfect circumstances for them live—and, indeed thrive– so far away from home. Phragmites australis is a fast-growing perennial grass with hollow woody stems. It grows in in dense stands in our meadow, sometimes reaching 15 feet in height. Sound like a fun thing to build with? We’ll experiment together, and, in doing so, red...uce the need for the use of toxic herbicides by harvesting the Phragmites before it begins to produce seeds in July and August

Our Artists’ Workshop series is rooted in the rich history of Bartram’s Garden, the oldest botanical garden in America. Following in the tradition of pioneering American explorer and botanical illustrator William Bartram, teaching artists Heather Rinehart and Alina Josan approach fine art through their love of nature and history. Heather Rinehart has a professional background in illustration and design and a deep interest in nature and storytelling. Alina Josan studied painting at the Tyler School of Art. Her work has been commissioned by several notable historic institutions in Philadelphia. As highly knowledgeable Bartram’s Garden enthusiasts, these artists are in a unique position to offer their students instruction in multi-disciplinary place-based art.
