Thursday, April 22, 2021, 7:30 p.m.: Biodiversity now! Making a more wild, more healthy, and more just world, with David Newsom: Our April monthly gathering will be a Zoom webinar by David Newson, Founder of the Wild Yards Project (https://www.wildyardsproject.com). Here is what he writes about himself and this very interesting and timely venture that can inspire us all:
David Newsom is a child of the 70’s, a father of two wild ones, husband and an avid outdoorsman. He founded the Wild Yards Project in 2017, after watching his own, sterile urban back lot spring to life, courtesy of native plants, a lot of love, and a steady supply of clean water.
A 30 years veteran of film and tv, David draws on his past to spread the story of the native habitat movement far and wide. The Wild Yards Project combines storytelling, public outreach, community gardens and consultation to help retrofit biodiverse habitat into urban and suburban spaces. David believes — madly, deeply — in story, especially ones that change the world. He started the Wild Yards Project because his native plants told him to.
