As Lake Boon abutters we play a very important part in preserving its watershed, flora and fauna. When planting your gardens this spring, consider native plants that help maintain our wildlife and biodiversity. We have the opportunity to learn more at an upcoming presentation sponsored by Sustainable Stow and Randall Library.
On Wednesday, April 19 at 7 p.m., speaker Amy Meltzer will give a talk on “Gardening With Native Plants: Providing habitat for pollinators, birds and other essential wildlife.” Amy focus on the evolutionary relationship among native plants, insects, birds and fungi, and how these interdependent relationships across diverse species are necessary for their survival.
She will show how growing native plants and using ecological landscaping practices can simultaneously reverse biodiversity loss, increase resilience in our landscapes, and slow climate change – all while creating a beautiful garden!
Amy is an active member of Grow Native Massachusetts and the Mass Pollinator Network. She is on both the Research Team and the Natural Solutions Working Group of Elders Climate Action.
