It’s time for all of us to take to heart the warnings and real science that demonstrate the hazards to people, pets, and wildlife from the use of pesticides and herbicides in our yards and gardens. Renowned garden designer Edwina von Gal’s Perfect Earth Project, based in New York, was formed to bring this message to a broad audience across the US. Perfect Earth collaborates with professional gardeners and lawn services to educate workers and customers about these hazards and present good, sustainable alternatives to a beautiful lawn. Edwina will talk about her “conversion” to toxin-free and the founding of Perfect Earth; the basics of nature-based maintenance, design suggestions for keeping it easy and action items for helping to spread the message.
Edwina joins us at MAGC in connection with her participation in “The Root Code: Toward a Green Economy,” which takes place in San Francisco this week, sponsored by the Kew Foundation America.
This presentation at MAGC is co-sponsored by YardSmart Marin, a county-wide initiative of the Marin Pesticide Reduction Coalition, in which the Marin Art & Garden Center is a participant.
