Many events include demonstrations. The Hamilton College campus is an accredited arboretum; please consider time to explore if you attend one of our events.

Alternatively, you can join us that morning on Zoom
“In an intriguing, empowering presentation based on her best-sellingTimber Press title How to Eradicate Invasive Plants, Teri will discuss weeds and invasive plants that are on the minds of gardeners, landscapers, park managers, and more. Geared towards the layman, Teri will define “weed,” and discuss the scope of the problem and what gardeners can realistically expect to achieve in their battle. She will review a variety of low- and non-toxic ways to fight back, saving herbicides for last. The presentation wraps up with short profiles and a discussion of 10-12 common problem plants in the region. Teri has over 35 books in publication, and her latest title, Landscaping for Dummies, is due out this Spring. Raised in Santa Barbara, California, and educated at Bard College in New York, she currently resides in a small village in the heart of central New York’s farm country.”
