Pat Hynes, An environmental engineer, former EPA employee, author, and director of the Traprock Center for Peace and Justice, will share Rachel Carson’s story in a talk entitled, Pollinators: Silent Spring and Rachel Carson’s Legacy. Her talk will be followed by experts from the Western Massachusetts Pollinators Network and the Western Massachusetts Master Gardeners about what their organizations can offer. In addition to introducing its campaign, Greening Greenfield will offer an action we can all do this spring as we purchase plants for our gardens.
Ms. Hynes talk is the first in a series of workshops and talks offered by Greening Greenfield (GG) that aim to inspire people to plant flowers, shrubs, and trees to beautify Greenfield, and build habitats for our insects to address the biodiversity and climate crisis in solidarity with regional, national, and international efforts.
