THE HUMANE GARDEN: CULTIVATING COMPASSION FOR ALL CREATURES

Why do we call some insects “beneficial” while others are “pests”? Why are some plants considered “desirable” while others are “weeds”? In this myth-busting talk, learn how common growing methods divide the natural world into false dichotomies and perpetuate misperceptions about the wild species living among us. Discover practical ways to put humane gardening philosophies into action by protecting wildlife nurseries, eliminating unintended hazards, nurturing plants that provide food and shelter, and humanely resolving conflicts with mammals and other commonly misunderstood creatures.

EVENT DETAILS:

Sunday, April 15, 2018 12:30 pm (serve vegan potluck); 1:00 pm talk begins

Bey Hall Auditorium at Monmouth University, West Long Branch, NJ 

400 Cedar Ave, West Long Branch, NJ 07764

This event is free and open to the public. Nancy will be doing a book signing after the event; please plan accordingly.

WHAT TO BRING TO THE VEGAN SHARE-A-DISH POTLUCK:

All dishes must be completely vegan. They may not contain any meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy products, or honey. Gelatin is a meat by-product. Please watch out for hidden dairy products, such as whey and casein or caseinate. Please prepare a 4×6 card with the name of the dish and all ingredients. Prepare enough to serve a sufficient sample for at least 8 people (basically, bring enough for a complete meal for two people if that’s all they ate, not that they would). Please bring your own serving dishes and utensils, as well as your own dishes and utensils and cup to eat/drink from; this will help us reduce waste created from single use plastics. The vegan potluck will begin being served at 12:45 pm. Please arrive early to help set up, if you can. We will do our best to be mindful of food waste, and we will compost any potential food scraps.
