VNPS programs are free and open to the public.   
No reservations are necessary for lectures. 

The wealth of resources now available on regional plant communities gives the 
landscape designer opportunities to move from simple/superficial plant  
arrangements to increased complexity in the assemblage of a design.   

The concept of plant communities enables the designer to explore natural systems and the power they have to help 
heal our fragmented landscapes.  

Susan Abraham, principal at Lush Life Landscape Design Associates, leads a 
team of environmentally-minded designers in the Northern Virginia region. 
Native plants are always the first choice for Lush Life designers. Susan is on 
the faculty of The George Washington University, teaching design and native 
plants in the graduate Landscape Design program.
