June 27 – Beyond Aesthetics: “Garden As If Life Depends On It” with Margie Hunter
June 27, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Posted by Wild Ones Middle Tennessee
Our June Monthly Meeting is usually a major event for the whole year and features prominent speakers. We are excited to present a talk by Margie Hunter this year on Monday, June 27, 2022 7:00-8:30 PM Central Time. This is a free virtual event on zoom and open to general public. Wild Ones membership is not required.
Wise gardening choices in residential and commercial landscapes help ensure the health and survival of local wildlife as well as ourselves. Recent research and in-depth observations demonstrate the value of native plants as the backbone for urban and suburban green space to attract and support the diversity of life needed for a truly functional (and beautiful) landscape. We’ll explore the findings of various authors and researchers and discuss their recommendations for creating gardens that offer a sustainable lifeline for everyone — insects to humans.
Margie Hunter is a naturalist, writer and author of Gardening with the Native Plants of Tennessee: The Spirit of Place. She gives presentations on native plants and natural history, is a member of Tennessee Native Plant Society, Tennessee Invasive Plant Council, and Wild Ones, and volunteers with the Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Margie is a founding board member of the Tennessee Naturalist Program, and serves as an instructor for several classes.
