The Humane Gardener fills a unique niche in describing simple principles for both attracting wildlife and peacefully resolving conflicts with all the creatures that share our world. Detailed chapters address planting for wildlife with native species; providing habitats that shelter baby animals, as well as birds, bees, and butterflies; creating safe zones in the garden; cohabiting with creatures often regarded as pests; letting nature be your garden designer.

In her presentation Nurturing Habitat for Wildlife, author Nancy Lawson will expand on the message in her book and address practical ways to put humane gardening philosophies into action. Why do we call some insects “beneficial” while others are “pests”? Why are some plants considered “desirable” while others are “weeds”? In this myth-busting talk, learn how common growing methods divide the natural world into false dichotomies and perpetuate misconceptions about the wild species living among us.

Nancy Lawson has been brought to UntitledTown through the generous sponsorship of The Wild Ones - Green Bay Chapter, Green Bay Botanical Garden, and NEW Master Gardener Association.
