One of the benefits of virtual, remote, online life is access to workshops and sections that are geographically restricted. For example, last summer I took a few permaculture lessons from the University of Washington Botanic Gardens and, incidentally, taught them in India.
At $ 20 per session, it was also more affordable than most body parts. Crossing boundaries opens up many opportunities for garden design and practical knowledge.
I find social media, especially Instagram, an important resource when it comes to education. I follow hashtags such as #cording, #Surprising Stability and #Vegetables. Some nurseries have online events about their plants and ecological issues. I have learned tips on growing fruit from Rentre Kindergarten, which contains instructional videos that grow on different species. I often find it easy to access their resources because I have to find out which fruit trees are weak and polluted on the cross.
I also regularly visit nonprofit gardens such as Morton Arbor, Winter and Conservancy for education, resources and online talks. I found a quail called Springs, an organization that promotes natural architecture and design.
Better scrolling than disappearing, trust me, and the content can be used immediately. I prefer to sleep in a partial shade on the western slopes rather than at the risk of contracting COVID-19.
The New York Botanical Garden has a wide range of educational resources and programs outside of the college or university I attend and attracts creative people working in the field to teach. Now that the classes are a mix of online or field work and imagination, it’s easier than ever to work on a certificate or take a one-time course in anything from gardening to floral painting and landscape design.
Although the Indigenous Plant Center at Westchester Community College is still not open to visitors, the lessons are available in practice. Their Fall program includes fields and a one-day workshop hosted by Lake Titan. It is led by Larry Wener, founder of New American Landscapes. For now, the body mask will be presented to the participants, but that may change. You can learn about indigenous bees, bird habitats and ecological gardens online.
Pretty, and pretty destructive
In New York City, I recently experienced the threat of deforestation. I expect to see a lot of different things on the subway levels – rats, glue, discarded food packages and other things that are hard to mention – but this was a shocking spotlight. Terrorist Warning – Yes, I did.
As he matured, the spotlight lit up the highway with a beautiful blend of flies, dots, and colors. It’s hard to miss. Unlike other eco-pests, such as Hemok Suf Adlgid or Emerald Ash Board, the spotted Fanot feeds on more than 70 species of plants, including hardwoods, fruit trees, and crops. His favorite varieties are alanthus (also called the tree of the sky), black almonds, and grapes.
Insects do not travel by themselves and are responsible for the unintentional dispersal of New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. It is often seen in landscaping and firewood, as well as in cars.
Destroying before it is invented is the first line of defense. The eggs can be found not only in trees but also in many different species. Massage of alcohol in massages is a recommended method of destruction. Just scratching it will keep the eggs from growing.
It is a very special time of the year to watch the spotlight fly. So when you walk or walk around the yard, look for bright colors and wax, brown eggs and more. The State Department of Environmental Protection, in collaboration with the Department of Agriculture and Markets, is responsible for protecting and conserving protected areas in high-value areas. Report a number of insects or eggs by taking a photograph and using the accessible form dec.ny.gov/animals/113303.html. Citizen participation is crucial to stopping these invasions.
