When we garden, we can support biodiversity through the plants we chose! In this workshop you will learn which native plants are less likely to be eaten by the suburban scourge of deer while also feeding butterflies and birds. Includes recommendations for specific flowers and bushes as well as details on how to grow them.

Deb Ellis is an environmental activist who is grateful to her parents for her deep love of nature. Deb is passionate about teaching how to use native plants to promote biodiversity and heal the Earth. She is the founder and co-leader of the Essex County chapter of the Native Plant Society of New Jersey, a Master Gardener, has served on the Montclair Environmental Commission, and has had a Certified Backyard Habitat through the National Wildlife Federation for 15 years. A retired social justice lawyer, Deb served in leadership positions in nonprofit organizations and received several awards for public service, including being named as a Champion of Change by the Obama White House.
