Horticulture Symposium: Cultivating a new garden ethic
November 28, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
With Larry Weaner, author of Garden Revolution; Scott Freeman, author of Saving Tarboo Creek; and Jan Merryweather, Program Director at Sustainable Conservation.
Our gardens are places of beauty, sources of food, and expressions of our creativity. They are also windows into the magic of nature and are inextricably connected to the natural world that sustains us. But can our gardens help clean our air and water, sustain wild plants and animals, and restore ecosystem heath? In this symposium three distinguished speakers explore how our gardening practices can satisfy our desire to create bountiful beauty while helping heal the larger environment. We’ll end with a panel discussion and a Q&A with the audience. (CEUs available.)
