HEIDI EISENHAUER

Heidi studied urban agriculture with the San Francisco League of Urban Gardeners (SLUG), working on many community development and harm reduction garden projects.  She became interested in native plants through her love of birds and worked with the North American Native Plant Society for 3 years on various projects. Through this work she was connected with invasive plant action groups and spent many weekends tackling garlic mustard. She coordinated the Roncyworks Green Team with 32 garden beds & volunteers.  When Heidi moved to Sudbury 2 year ago she took a local park under her wing and has been working to eradicate exotic garden migrants and invasive plants. She is also working with the pollinator garden team at Wild at Heart. 

TAKE ACTION ON INVASIVE PLANT ISSUES!

PLANT AND RAKE WITHOUT THE ACHE

Gardening is a great way to stay active and have fun in the sun; however, many people sustain injuries that could easily have been prevented with a little know-how.  Keeping in mind good posture and lifting mechanics while doing your gardening activities are essential.

DANI LYNN REDGRIFT
(DLR Photography)
"I cannot remember a time when I didn't take pictures, or that I did not carry or have my camera with me.  I have always loved the outdoors, walking, hiking, and exploring; bringing my camera along was a natural progression for me.  Photography is my passion and I often say that I see the world through a different 'lens' or a series of '4 x 6' shots.  I love doing macro's (extreme close-up photography), landscapes, reflections, old cars, barns and buildings; bringing them to life, capturing them from different angles with a different perspective."
