2/6: Sustainability Symposium at Botanical Garden



Despite ravage-the-world naysayers, the idea of sustainability — protecting Earth’s resources by replacing what we use and using as little as possible — is growing exponentially. The Sustainability Symposium at the Cleveland Botanical Garden (11030 East Blvd., 216.721.1600), now in its fifth year, brings together a variety of sustainability proponents to talk about better gardening practices. Joe Lamp’l, host of PBS’ GardenSMART, will be the featured speaker, taking about “seven green concepts” for gardens. Other speakers from around the region will discuss topics like permaculture, backyard stewardship, adapting your garden to climate change, how to start plants from seed and what’s in your soil. The symposium runs from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. The registration fee — $90 for members, $99 for non-members — includes a vegetarian (of course!) lunch. Register online or call 216.721.1600 ext. 100. — Anastasia Pantsios
