    Worried about the planet? Change starts in your back yard!

    SPRINGFIELD, MA — The Springfield Garden Club will host a program presented by entomologist and author Doug Tallamy on Wednesday, June 16 at 7 PM. The event will be virtual and will be accessible via Zoom.

    The Springfield Garden Club has been encouraging our members, our neighbors and our city officials
    to “Go Native” but many have been taking it on faith without a full understanding of why it is so crucial. By appealing to the widest audience possible, we hope to raise the awareness of the public as well as help them to be part of the solution,” explained Club president Beate Bolen.

    Tallamys program will focus on the information in his book Natures Best Hope” but will also touch on related areas. Recent headlines about global insect declines and three billion fewer birds in North America are a bleak reality check about how ineffective our current landscape designs have been at sustaining the plants and animals that sustain us. Such losses are not an option if we wish to continue our current standard of living on Planet Earth. The good news is that none of this is inevitable. Tallamy will discuss simple steps that each of us can- and must- take to reverse declining biodiversity and will explain why we, ourselves, are nature’s best hope. The program will include a question-and-answer segment.

    Doug Tallamy is the T. A. Baker Professor of Agriculture in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware, where he has authored 104 research publications and has taught insect related courses for 40 years. Chief among his research goals is to better understand the many ways insects interact with plants and how such interactions determine the diversity of animal communities. Among his awards are the Garden Club of America Margaret Douglas Medal for Conservation and the Tom Dodd, Jr. Award of Excellence, the 2018 AHS B.Y. Morrison Communication Award and the 2019 Cynthia Westcott Scientific Writing Award.

    The program is open to the public as well as club members via Zoom. Tickets for guests are $12.50 and are available at EventBrite.com.

    Right in our back yard a fascinating ultra modern factory/farm of hydroponically grown lettuce.  The CEO Paul Seller explains in a series of videos the philosphy and history.   Something to think about for future food produce.   Interesting.   Sue

    "I have Tropical Milkweed seeds I'd be happy to share with club members. The Monarch Butterfly is on the endangered species list. One reason for their droppings population is the lack of food sources. This is one way to help their recovery." Greg Billings.  Call Sue Billings at 978-365-5716 and arrangements can be made to get the seeds.
