PARIS —  Eli Goodwin will make a return appearance at the McLaughlin Garden and Homestead lecture series on Wednesday, March 26. His presentation, “Need-to-Know Points on Landscaping and Landscape Design,” will take place at 4 p.m.

This is the sixth in this year’s seven-lecture series. It will be held at the garden’s newest acquisition, 103 Main St., right next door to the garden.

Goodwin, an Oxford Hills native and Cornell University graduate, has reopened the former Goodschmidt’s Nursery on Route 26 in Oxford.

Last year he discussed underused landscape plants. This year he will focus on undervalued landscape tips. He plans to discuss information on how to realize the potential of home landscapes and how do it using the right methods.

He will include key concepts of design, correct ways to install plantings and basic techniques for building hardscapes.

Tea will be served prior to the talk. The gift shop in the historic Tribou house will offer 10 percent discounts before and after the lecture.

The presentation is open to the public. No prior reservations are needed. Donations will be accepted to further the maintenance of the historic garden and buildings.
