Known for her creativity in landscape design, Dawn will present benefits and uses of beautiful, lesser-known, and under-used trees for Western New York gardens.”

Interested gardeners can stop in or call Lockwood’s Garden Center at 716.649.4684 to register for classes or see each class listing under Lectures & Workshops to register on-line:http://www.weknowplants.com/classes-and-events/type:lectures-and-workshops/. Individual classes are $10 each. Full day of classes at the popular Fall Garden Fair is $25.

Dawn who currently resides in Portland, Oregon is originally from the City of Tonawanda, NY. Hummel said, “It’s such an honor to be asked to speak locally on my favorite trees. I love to share my passion and enthusiasm for ornamental trees, conifers and shrubs to gardeners nationwide. Fall is simply the best time of the year to select and plant foundation/ specimen trees and shrubs. It provides the root system time to nestle in the soil, grow deep over winter and get established before our hot and humid summer days arrive.”

Other fine speakers for the Fall Garden Fair weekend event include: Dan Cooper, author of Gardening from a Hammock, Mike and Kathy Shadrack from Smug Creek Gardens, ‘Hostas, Arisaema, and their Shady Friends’, David Clark ‘Pairings for a Great Spring Garden’, and Sally Cunningham ‘Tweaking Our Gardening Ways’. In the food court, East Aurora's Medici House will offer seasonal salads, soups and pizza, and Sarah Sorci of Sweet Flag Herbs will demonstrate making ‘The Four Thieves Vinegar’.
