Did you know?... Even though it's winter, some microbes can be active underground. This is a great time to learn more about them to prepare for the next growing season!

You’ve probably heard about microbes, but who are they and what do they do?

Christine will introduce you to the amazing microscopic beings critical to the health and productivity of plants (and therefore us!). Learn what microbes do, what they need, and what you can do to have a flourishing soil community in your own garden.

Christine Gust, active Wild Ones member, is a certified lab technician through Dr. Elaine's™ Soil Food Web school and works with local gardeners, farmers, and compost makers to build healthy soil. She worked at Harlequin's Gardens wholesale for several seasons and co-led the installation of the Greenverein Garden, a native plant demonstration garden and former parkway strip at the Denver Turnverein in downtown Denver.

Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants
Ecological restoration can be understood as an act of reciprocity, in return for the gifts of the earth. This talk explores the ecological and ethical imperatives of healing the damage we have inflicted on our land and waters. We trace the evolution of restoration philosophy and practice and consider how integration of indigenous knowledge can expand our understanding of restoration from the biophysical to the biocultural. Reciprocal restoration includes not only healing the land but our relationship to land. In healing the land, we are healing ourselves.

Wild Ones is excited to cohost this event with the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh's Earth Week 2024 and the Wild Ones Fox Valley Chapter.

Members Only Family Friendly Free Event Home Garden Tour Free Public Parking

Wild Ones members, join us in this summer's Denver Garden Crawl! All of these gardens are at different stages - some new to natives, some established. We will not only explore the early-summer stage of the gardens, but also celebrate our hosts' successes, ask questions and possibly offer advice to help them overcome any challenges they are encountering.

In the interest of showing how native plants directly support birds, we are partnering with Denver Field Ornithologists (DFO), and will have a DFO representative at one of the homes explaining the connection between birds and native plants.

On this crawl, we will move as a group to the homes of four WOFR gardens in a pre-determined order, spending about a half hour at each property.

The garden crawl is kid friendly (please supervise), members and friends are welcome (limited spots, so all need to register!) and street parking is available. Carpooling is encouraged from the first garden address. 

Questions? Please contact Zoe, Denver Co-Regional Coordinator @ [email protected]

THE CRAWL IS FULL - keep an eye out for another Denver Garden Crawl later this season!
