General Meeting: Climate Wise Landscaping with Ginny Stibiolt
This presentation is based on topics from the book “Climate-Wise Landscaping: Practical Actions for a Sustainable Future,” which takes an optimistic approach, with hundreds of actions that property owners or land managers (homeowners, communities, and
municipalities) can take right now to accomplish at least one of 3 objectives:
1) to help the landscape survive climate change,
2) to help wildlife survive climate change, and
3) to help to mitigate climate change. The book was written by Ginny Stibolt, a botanist in Florida and Sue Reed, a landscape Architect in Massachusetts, with a foreword by Doug Tallamy.
Ginny Stibolt began her professional life as a teacher and over the years has taught math, science, business, and computer courses at levels from 7th grade through college. She is a life-long gardener with a Master of Science degree in Botany from the University
of Maryland. Since moving to Florida in 2004, she has written 4 peer-reviewed books on Florida gardening all published by University Press of Florida. She has also coauthored “Climate-Wise Landscaping”; published by New Society Press in 2018. In addition, she has written hundreds of gardening and nature articles for various publications. She speaks regularly to environmental and gardening groups.
Her website is www.GreenGardeningMatters.com.
