Do you have a spot in your backyard that suffers from contaminated soil, flooding from rain water, or a monoculture of invasive species? Jessica Arcate Schuler, Director of the Thain Family Forest, will teach you how to restore your garden's ecosystem. In this era of Anthropocene, the Earth's ecosystems face many challenges that are a direct or indirect result of human activities. As gardeners, we can be part of the solution. Learn where to source and plant species that can help bring your trouble spots back to life. Come away with a thorough understanding of New York State's recent laws about what invasive species to avoid purchasing and how to control them, so that you are truly gardening for good.
