In this talk, Amy will focus on the current biodiversity crisis; the evolutionary history among native plants, insects, birds and fungi, and how these interdependent relationships among diverse species are necessary for their survival. She will show how growing native plants and using ecological landscape practices can simultaneously reverse biodiversity loss, increase resilience in our landscapes, and slow climate change - all while creating a beautiful garden!

Amy Meltzer is an active member of Grow Native Massachusetts and the Mass Pollinator Network, and is on both the Research Team and the Natural Solutions working group of Elders Climate Action. She has been researching and gardening with native plants for over ten years.
