PSC Sustainability Seminar with Dawn Bazely: ‘Southern Ontario Biodiversity and Local Food Security’
Inch by inch, row by row, learn some botanical information to help your garden grow! The 1937 Nobel Prize-winner, Albert Szent-Györgi, reminded us that photosynthesis is “what drives life” and “is a little current, kept up by the sunshine.” Every plant can take in carbon dioxide and water and make simple sugars while giving off oxygen.
University Professor Dawn Bazely is a faculty member in the Department of Biology. Dawn is an ecologist in the field of plant-herbivore interactions. She will discuss the food security and its role in in building a sustainable future. She will also share some botany basics to help you understand the importance of native biodiversity, and how it is not incompatible with growing a garden using local vegetables and herbs.
