Bioplanning a Garden for Lexington with Diana Beresford-Kroeger
Botanist, medical biochemist, and author Diana Beresford-Kroeger has a unique combination of Western scientific training and an understanding of various traditional ideologies. Born in Ireland, she now lives in Ontario. She has written several books on the global forest and has been featured in an award-winning documentary. Her latest book is To Speak for the Trees; My Life’s Journey from Ancient Celtic Wisdom to a Healing Vision of the Forest.
Diana will talk about the plants and trees that are beneficial for planting in Lexington
and the surrounding area for the health and well-being of Lexington residents
and the long-term sustainability of life on Earth. Whether you are a gardener or
not, everyone can play a role in replanting the global forest by starting locally.
