Welcome to the ninth Turning a New Leaf sustainable landscaping conference. In a time that has felt anything but normal we dedicate the 2021 conference to "Planting a New Normal" , with the goal of highlighting collaborations that normalize sustainable practices and ensure diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice.

We believe that landscape professionals have a unique opportunity to effect positive change in the Chesapeake Bay region- a task best achieved when we work together. Join us as we work together to create a healthier, and more equitable, watershed.

Landscapes that support pollinator biodiversity require designs that take into account the structure of pollinator communities and the resources they depend on.  Science has learned a great deal about pollinators over the last decade.  We have a better understanding of the special ecological structure of plant-pollinator food webs and how they decline.  There is also a better appreciation for pollinator nutrition and the nutritional resources offered by different plants.  Nesting sites and other resources have been explored in great detail.  All these insights are being used to inform landscape design.  

This session will not be recorded.
