Our May 3, 2018 meeting features Nancy Lawson, the Humane Gardener. Nancy gardens with the creatures in mind and authored the book, The Humane Gardener, copies of which she should have for sale at the meeting.

Why do we call some insects “beneficial” while others are “pests”? Why are some plants considered “desirable” while others are “weeds”? In this mythbusting talk, learn how common growing methods divide the natural world into false dichotomies and perpetuate misperceptions about the wild species living among us. Discover practical ways to put humane gardening philosophies into action by protecting wildlife nurseries, eliminating unintended hazards, nurturing plants that provide food and shelter, and humanely resolving conflicts with mammals and other commonly misunderstood creatures.

The Humane Gardener BookNancy Lawson is the author of The Humane Gardener: Nurturing a Backyard Habitat for Wildlife and a columnist for All Animals magazine.  A frequent speaker on garden ecology, she founded Humane Gardener, an outreach initiative dedicated to animal-friendly landscaping methods. Lawson’s book and wildlife habitat have been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Oprah Magazine, and other media outlets. She previously led the creative teams behind the award winning magazines of The Humane Society of the United States.
