“Gardening as an ecological tool in a changing climate”

2021-10-05T20:44:32-04:00October 5th, 2021|, , |

The climate is changing rapidly in the northeastern U.S. in ways that are already impacting our way of life. This talk will cover how these changes impact our native biodiversity, and also how we can use gardening as an ecological tool to seed the ecosystems of the future. We will discuss how thoughtful choices about what we plant now can promote native biodiversity while reducing the spread of harmful invasive species.
