A recent survey of gardeners in the United States revealed that two-thirds considered native plants moderately or very important to have in their own gardens, and more than half had purchased native plants in the previous year. Why? This presentation will address the questions of what native plants are, why they are so important ecologically, and how native plants can be integrated successfully into everyone’s landscape.

Dr. DeBerry will join us in person for this presentation. Register to reserve your seat in the library or register to join us online from your home. We will send you a Zoom link to join us.

Dr. Candy DeBerry gardens on 1/3 acre on the edge of the small city of Washington in southwestern Pennsylvania. She is passionate about growing native plants to support biodiversity, harvesting blue ribbons from the county fair for her garlic, tomatoes, and peppers, and collecting eggs from her three backyard chickens. To support her gardening habit, Dr. DeBerry is also a Professor of Biology, Director of the Biochemistry program, and Coordinator of Science Internships at Washington & Jefferson College, where she teaches Cell Biology, Biochemistry, and a senior seminar on cancer.
