The public is invited to a program focused on using a holistic approach to plant pest control in order to make plants thrive, presented by Philip Clark.

owner of Organic Landscaping in Santa Fe since 1981.Philip will discuss his conversion from believing what he was taught about plant pests in school to the approach he uses today.  He will share some of what he has learned over the past 32 years observing and controlling insects and disease in landscape plants and vegetable gardens.Philip graduated in 1972 from North Carolina State University with a double major in botany and horticulture. His passions include nature photography and mountaineering, which have given him a lasting appreciation of the fragile balance between humans and nature.  He practices the land ethic expressed so well by the Bioneers:  "It's all alive; it's all connected; it's all intelligent; it's all relative."A short Native Plant Society chapter meeting precedes the talk. Native plant books will be on display and available for purchase.
