Urban Forestry Forum at Green Tuesdays

Next Tuesday, January 12: Urban Forestry Forum
6:30 to 8:00 - Monona Public Library
Learn how to create and support a healthy urban forest from foresters Marla Eddy and Anne Healy, and the folks at Community GroundWorks. From Emerald Ash Borers, gypsy moths, and other threats, to the potential of fruit and nut orchards to help diversify our forests and feed us, there is much to know about how we can help nature's systems that provide for us.

About Green Tuesdays

About the Forums and Community GroundWorks
This is one of a continuing series of forums throughout the Madison area. The Urban Forestry Forum was created by Community GroundWorks and funded by an urban forestry grant from the State of Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Forestry Program.

Community GroundWorks at Troy Gardens is a nonprofit organization responsible for the development, management, and stewardship of twenty-six acres on the north side of Madison. Troy Gardens is composed of a community garden, an organic CSA farm, restored natural areas, an edible forest, and a large Kids' Garden. Community GroundWorks promotes healthy communities and personal well-being through education, growing wholesome and organic food for local tables, and nurturing a relationship between people and the land.
