June 2022 General Meeting

As a Landscape Designer, Marina Dimitriadis collaborates with her clients to ensure designs are in harmony with special needs. One memorable client request was to reduce the number of plants in a design to accommodate a child’s severe allergies. Marina researched allergy causing plants and found Thomas Leo Ogren’s system for combating allergens based on plant gender. In this presentation she will discuss how allergy sufferers can reduce or eliminate their symptoms by selecting appropriate plants for their gardens.

Marina Dimitriadis is a certified Landscape Designer with Dimitriadis Design Build, a company she and her Landscape Contractor husband run together. In addition, she is a Master Gardener, a part-time professor at Seneca College and a Design Consultant for Evergreen Canada.
