Gardening for Nature:
Lessons from Brooklyn Bridge Park

Rebecca McMackin is the chief horticulturist for the acclaimed 85 acre Brooklyn Bridge Park; a park created with ecology in mind. The park features native woodlands, freshwater wetlands, salt marshes, and numerous meadows all of which closely mimic nature.
In her talk, Rebecca will share what she has learned about creating native plant ecosystems that encourage birds, butterflies, and more. Particular emphasis will be placed on techniques they use to keep this biodiverse environment thriving.   Informative handouts will be provided.
Rebecca McMackin is an ecologically obsessed horticulturalist and garden designer, the proprietor of Mantis Plant Works, and an environmental educator.  She lectures regularly on trees, pollinators, and soil science at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture, and New England Grows. Her work has been published by the New York Times.
