Speaker: Nancy Lawson, author of The Humane Gardener: Nurturing a Backyard Habitat for Wildlife 

DescriptionTraditional cultivation practices too often ignore the needs and valuable contributions of our fellow species, exploiting myths and fears about the animals and plants living among us. Nancy Lawson will explain how to abandon preconceived notions of what a garden should be while focusing on native plants, gentle cultivation, and humane conflict resolution strategies that can bring new life and beauty to your own backyard. Nancy is an advocate of native planting who advises gardeners to start small, stressing that it’s not necessary to tear every non-native plant out to make a difference.

Location: Kensington Park Library.
