Food for Thought: Bringing Nature Home


The last selection in our series on humankind and the nature world is Bringing Nature Home by Douglas H. Tallamy. This is a fantastic guide for anyone with a lawn or garden, to restore the lost biodiversity from many decades of popular landscaping choices. The book is well organized and readable, with plenty of anecdotes and examples.

This month’s book talk falls in the midst of our stay-at-home order, so if you’ve read the book, let’s talk it up, and if you would like to bring 3 other books to recommend for summer reading, please do.

Food for Thought book discussion Wednesday, May 13 from 6:00-7:00 via Zoom. To make a reservation, please send a note to
