OXFORD — The Oxford Garden Club will feature Claudia West in a program titled “Wild and Neat” at 2 p.m. Thursday, March 14, at the Oxford Community Center, 200 Oxford Road.

The program is free and open to the public.

West will share how gardeners can bridge the gap between great garden design and ecology.

She has an extensive background in horticulture, ecology and environmental restoration. She is a consultant for North Creek Nurseries and has also worked for landscape architects Wolfgang Oehme, Carol Oppenheimer and Sylva Native Nursery.

West is co-author, with Thomas Rainer, of “Planting in a Post-Wild World: Designing Plant Communities for Resilient Landscapes.”

Books can be purchased and signed by the author after the program.
