Green Tuesdays Films & Lectures

Introduction to Organic Gardening with Erin Schneider

Tuesday, March 29, 6:30 – 8:00pm, Monona Public Library, 1000 Nichols Road, Free

Learn how to turn your yard into an “edible ecotopia” by attending this introduction to organic gardening from Erin Schneider, co-owner of Hilltop Community Farm, LLC, and a Fellow and Facilitator with the UW Office of Human Resource Development.

On tap from Schneider: how to look at garden design from a systems perspective—from the ground up—and then design our backyards and gardens in the image of an ecosystem. Schneider will emphasize site preparation and sustainable garden design for urban areas. She’ll also share ways to integrate perennials into a vegetable garden, information about plant guilds and plant community functions, and more tools for creating abundance.

Green Tuesdays: Creating awareness, sparking conversation, empowering change.
