The Vital New Role of the
Dr. Doug Tallamy, nationally recognized environmental speaker and award-winning author, talked about the 'Vital New Role of the Suburban/ Urban Garden" at the 2014
Toward Harmony with Nature Conference.
Do you think of your garden or yard as a last chance for the survival of threatened plants, insects and animals?
Dr. Tallamy explained why and how our home and community gardens must be redesigned to play this critical role.
“Our natural areas are too small and isolated to sustain the plants and animals that run our ecosystems. By using native plants in our neighborhood and corporate landscapes we can restore vital ecosystem functions where we live and work. We can all play a role in stitching the natural world together again, creating networks for life.”
