Potluck at 6:30, program at 7:15. The program, Nature in Our Neighborhood: The Heritage of our Place in the World and How We Can Support Abundant Natural Communities, will be presented by Jonathan Parker.
Jonathan grew up in the woods, by a brook, in the hills of Vermont. He lives with his family in Ann Arbor and grows native perennials from seed that he collects. After seeing first hand how invasive species have spread and damaged local natural communities, he is convinced that we should all be supporting our local ecosystem by surrounding our homes with native species. Partnering with nonprofit organizations Adapt: Community Supported Ecology and Wild Ones, he offers free consultations, seeds, plants, tools, knowledge, and techniques.
