Nancy Lawson, author of “The Humane Gardener,” will offer practical ways on how to nurture a backyard that is friendly to all the creatures who live in your neighborhood on Sunday December 9 at the Towson Branch of the Baltimore County Library. This program is free, and begins at 2 PM in the basement meeting room at the library. Light refreshments and a book sale and signing will follow the presentation.
Lawson will have constructive tips on how to garden to benefit insects like butterflies, bees and other pollinators, and the birds and mammals who share our neighborhoods. Gardeners will learn how to cultivate compassion for all creatures by using animal-friendly landscaping practices to eliminate potential hazards to insects and wildlife.
Nancy Lawson is the founder of Humane Gardener, an outreach initiative dedicated to cultivating compassion for all creatures great and small through animal-friendly, environmentally sensitive landscaping methods. She is a columnist for All Animals magazine and volunteers as a master naturalist and master gardener in central Maryland.
