Most are aware that the earth’s climate is changing. What do these changes mean for our locale? How are our gardening efforts affected? Explore ways that you can adapt to these changes to make your gardens successful. This presentation about plants and gardening also emphasizes how gardening can be used as an educational tool to respond to climate change in our everyday lives.
Donna Levy has spent many years working with Cornell Plantations—now called Cornell Botanical Gardens. She has experience developing an interpretive Climate Change Garden, designing environmental education programs, running integrated pest management and plant health care programs, and working with others to manage the gardens. Donna resides in Interlaken, N.Y., where she and her husband own a 70 acre farm that they purchased in 1988. They currently grow and wholesale garlic, grow all their own fruit and vegetables, and rent the 50 tillable acres to an Organic grain grower. Donna treasures most her time working in her ornamental perennial gardens.
