Climate Wise Gardening: An Earthkeeping Fair

April 27 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

We’re excited and honored to be participating and sponsoring the upcoming Climate Wise Gardening, An Earth Keeping Fair event on April 27th.  

FREE!  Over 30 demonstrations, exhibits, talks, and films on these and related topics: 

       Pollinator and bird-friendly perennials and shrubs

       How to give up the lawnmower with “no-mow” grasses

       Intensive planting with increased diversity

       The magic of soil: turning dirt into rich, healthy soil

       Water solutions when there’s too much or too little

       Exchanging the rototiller for “no-till” methods

       Soil pH testing – bring a sample from your garden

       Free tree and shrub seedlings to take home 

Everyone with a garden or yard can be “climate wise” by adopting practices that protect the earth and support wildlife.    Hands-on activities and displays will show how the ecosystem works and how soil, microorganisms, and plants capture carbon.  Together, we can contribute to bringing carbon and water cycles back into balance.  

Co-Sponsors: Cornell Cooperative Extension Tompkins County, Fossil Free Tompkins, Social Ventures, Sustainable Tompkins, Soil and Water Conservation District, NRCS, Citizens Climate Lobby, Dryden Resource Awareness Coalition, League of Women Voters, Environmental Management Council, Cornell School of Integrative Plant Science, Tompkins County Planning and Sustainability Department, Groundswell, and many others.
