BOOKS FOR SALE
The Master Gardener Foundation is sponsoring a VIRTUAL fundraiser entitled Conversations on Nature and it is scheduled for Thursday, October 15, 2020.
Plan on the evening beginning with fundraising to generate support for the Master Gardener program. Due to the cancellation of three annual fundraisers during 2020, funds raised this evening will be used to help the Foundation support the Master Gardener program. A virtual keynote presentation from Jennifer Jewell will follow.
Jennifer Jewell is the creator, writer, and host of the award-winning public radio program and podcast, Cultivating Place: Conversations on Natural History and the Human Impulse to Garden. She will speak to us about her newest book, The Earth in Her Hands: 75 Extraordinary Women Working in the World of Plants.
In this inspiring book she profiles seventy-five women influencers who work in wide ranging plant fields including botany, floral design, landscape architecture, farming, herbalism and food justice and more.
We look forward to having you join us!
