The ever-popular Krohn Conservatory butterfly show opened last week, “Pura Vida: Butterflies of Costa Rica” runs through June 22. Krohn General Manager Andrea Schepmann and Regina Edwards, aka "the Bug Lady" at Cincinnati Parks, discuss this year’s Krohn show, and what went into creating “Pura Vida,” a tropical hideaway of exotic plants, cascading waterfalls, colorful parrot fish, mysterious stone sculptures, and 16,000 butterflies.
Krohn Conservatory opens its summer show, “Let It Grow,” to the public Tuesday.
"Let It Grow" focuses on emergent sustainable food production techniques with applications for families, schools, neighborhoods and businesses. “People want to take control of their health and what they eat,” Bethany Butler, the show designer said.
Each of the gardens featured in the exhibit save either space, time, resources or all three.
Vertical gardening uses soil as a growing medium with plants arranged on walls or hanging displays. Each of the other techniques is soilless.
