Carrie Coyne is the Horticulture Program Facilitator at St. Louis Community College and she is also a homeowner. When Carrie moved into her home, the yard was choked with invasive plants. With a plan and determination, she and her husband transformed their St. Louis County property into an oasis of native plants. Learn how they did it, and how you can too, in this free webinar on Wednesday, July 6 at 4:00 p.m. Topics will include the existing conditions when they moved in, their desires for change, the planning process, the grant process, installation, and ongoing maintenance.

As the Horticulture Program Facilitator at St. Louis Community College Carrie supports students, faculty, and staff while managing the day-to-day activities of the Program. She is focused on fostering students on their path to success and building a strong, resilient Career and Technical Education Program. Prior to her service at STLCC, she practiced landscape architecture at SWT Design where she utilized her passion for horticulture, arboriculture, and native ecologies on built projects across the country. She holds a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana and an Associate of Horticulture from STLCC. Carrie is a Missouri registered landscape architect and ISA certified arborist.

The webinar, to be held via Zoom, will be 45 minutes including a question and answer session. The webinar will be recorded, and sent to all registrants as well as posted to our YouTube channel.
