Planet & People Friendly Backyards

May 5 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Planet & People Friendly Backyards – Caring for our planet and people starts right in our own backyards learn how with Claudia Bolli
Caring for our planet and people starts right in our own backyards. With carefully selected edible, medicinal and native plants, we can create a garden sanctuary that heals and feeds us while providing habitat for other species. This presentation will mention eco-scaping and permaculture principles, and includes some practical tools and strategies for working with hardy plants, pollinators, soil dwellers and on-site water sources.

Claudia Bolli is a nature lover, gardener and teacher. Her desire to contribute to society and protect our planet has led her to permaculture, a design system for human habitat that is inspired by relationships found in nature. She shares her passion for growing food through permaculture design, yard consultations and occasional workshops. Her education includes a B.Ed., and a Diploma in Biological Sciences. She has completed a Permaculture Design Certificate, Master Naturalist training, is a Gaia College accredited Organic Master Gardener for the OMG Stony Plain program, and has taken numerous gardening courses from The Urban Farmer and other inspiring teachers. Claudia is the owner of Wild Green Garden Consulting, www.wildgreen.ca, in Edmonton. She also coordinates Little Green Thumbs, an indoor school gardening program, on behalf of Sustainable Food Edmonton.
