February General Meeting
Michelle Kalantari – Backyard Gardening for Nature
Arrive at 6:45 for social time or 7:00 for the Program; meetings are free and open to the public.
Over a 3 year period Michelle converted her Richfield yard of mostly sod to a vibrant landscape with 70% native plants and no more grass to mow. She will take us on a photographic journey of the changes made and the resulting biodiversity of life that found its way into her garden including more songbirds. It’s like a chapter right out of Douglas Tallamy’s book, Bringing Nature Home. Michelle is an amateur gardener and photographer and was inspired by her work at The Nature Conservancy to preserve biodiversity and decided to extend their mission into her own back yard.
