Start Date
06/08/2018
End Date

Description
The challenges of urban gardening aren’t unique, just concentrated: lack of space and light, disturbed, degraded, and absent soils and habitats, inaccessibility of natural areas. Lessons and ideas from urban gardening can be employed in any garden, provide examples of how we can employ and enjoy native plants in our gardens, and the life they bring to them, and nurture and sustain our connections to the natural world.
