Healthy Communities are Rooted in Urban Forests
Thorold ON (Four Points by Sheraton, St. Catharines Niagara Suites 3530 Schmon Parkway)
"This conference will be focusing on the relationship between urban forests and community health. Registration is not yet open. This is a save the date announcement. We are finalizing the list of speakers. As information becomes available, it will be posted on our website www.oufc.org.Aside:
We have confirmed our keynote speaker: Diana Beresford-Kroeger is a botanist and medical biochemist who is an expert on the medicinal, environmental, and nutritional properties of trees. She is the author of several books including Arboretum America: A Philosophy of the Forest (2003), its sister book Arboretum Borealis, and The Global Forest (2010).
Hey OUFC speakers coordinators: good call! Folks have been enthusiastically recommending Diana Beresford-Kroeger's books to me since spring, and I've been going through a "I am so hard-up for intro plant biochemistry (and so are you, because a lot of it is emerging knowledge)" phase, so thank you! :)
