Earth Matters, our Virtual Winter Speaker Series is in full swing! We’re bringing you a new topic and expert each month from November through April on the Zoom platform.

Sessions run from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm (EST) on the first Wednesday of the month and will focus on a wide variety of ecological topics.


This month we welcome Margaret Roach on April 6th at 6:00 pm (EDT):

Please join us on Wednesday, April 6th from 6:00 to 7:30 pm (EST), for Margaret Roach’s discussion on Nonstop Plants: A Garden for 365 Days. Expressions heard commonly each September like “the season’s almost over” don’t sit well with Margaret. She has worked for 30+ years to make her garden in the Hudson Valley-Berkshires area a visual treat every day of the year. Meet the plants and the philosophy that make it happen, delivered with a dose of “horticultural how-to and woo-woo.” Margaret loves looking out her windows 365 days a year—not just in “garden season.” This can be you as well! Whether looking at your yard or community space. Get that year-round goodness!

Margaret Roach has been a columnist at the New York Times, fashion editor at Newsday, the first garden editor for Martha Stewart Living magazine, and the editorial director of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. In 2008 Roach left New York City for her home upstate, where she is a consultant and avid gardener, keeping fans up to date on her blogs A Way to Garden and The Sister Project. Roach is the author of A Way to Garden, named Best Garden Book of the Year by the Garden Writers’ Association of America, and Groundcovers, part of the Burpee American Gardening Series, and co-authored The Natural Habitat Garden.

Thank you for making our inaugural season of “Earth Matters” such a success.

Registration is open now for Nonstop Plants: A Garden for 365 Days.
