Working with Nature by Sean James

KW Now - Online Community Hub

gardenKitchener and Kitchener Public Library is presenting a seminar on Working with Nature by Sean James.

Sean will present a common-sense approach to avoiding pesticides in the garden, how to let nature do the work by encouraging soil health, biodiversity, and proper plant care. He will provide a few slides with lots of information and will answer all your questions.

Named by GardenMaking magazine as one of “20 Making a Difference”, gardening has been Sean James’ hobby and profession for over 35 years. A graduate of Niagara Parks School of Horticulture, a Master Gardener, a public speaker, writer, and teacher; Sean focuses on eco-gardening techniques, which makes sense since he grew up surrounded by nature near Crawford Lake in Campbellville. He sits on several environmental committees and has appeared on many television and radio shows. Sean founded Fern Ridge Landscaping & Eco-consulting and ran it for over 20 years, recently handing it over to his leadership team. He now owns ‘Sean James Consulting & Design’, with projects including designing, consulting, teaching, speaking and writing.
