Weavers Way Sustainability Workshop: Soil, Carbon, Gardening and Agriculture

Wednesday, September 27, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Can we have diverse, regenerative and productive gardens and farms while building carbon in soils? Is it all about just minimizing emissions? Where is the "Carbon Action" and how can we as gardeners most productively engage? What is biochar? What roles do life and diverse perennial plant systems play in building carbon in the soil?
Learn about all this and so much more from the incredibly knowedable and inspirational Dale Hendricks founder of Green Light Plants, LLC. Dale has been growing and propagating plants professionally since 1975 when he was fortunate to be employed at Green Leaf Enterprises in Lancaster, PA. In 1988 he co-founded North Creek Nurseries, Inc along with current owner Steve Castorani in order to propagate and grow perennials and grasses with an emphasis on natives and garden selections of natives. In 2009 he founded Green Light Plants, LLC. to consult on carbon friendly and regenerative landscapes; growing native, woodland and permaculture plants regeneratively, organically and joyfully. Dale lives in Landenberg, southern Chester County, PA with his family where he gardens, propagates plants, and works on rewilding- growing the productivity, diversity, capacity and resilience of the land.
