"To paraphrase Abe Lincoln, you can create multifunctional residential landscapes using all-natives some of the time, and some natives all of the time, but you cannot meet all landscaping goals using all natives all of time." –Rick Darke, the Living Landscape: Designing for Beauty and Biodiversity in the Home Garden

After growing up in Detroit, Buenos Aires, and Philadelphia, Meg settled in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She is an avid cyclist, camper, and gardener. Her small city garden began as a haven for songbirds and pollinators. She is in the process of transforming the garden into one that is more supportive of the entire ecosystem. Her garden is a terrific place to read, knit, nap, share iced tea with friends, and listen to her husband play guitar.

What inspired you to become involved with Wild Ones:
"Washtenaw County has a wide variety of groups related to supporting habitat and gardening. Wild Ones is the group that for me, brings it all together. After a long and satisfying career in public libraries and with state and national library associations, I welcome the opportunity to apply my planning and organizing skills in support of Wild Ones. Building community and responding to constituent concerns has been central to my work experience. Wild Ones is gaining momentum as it introduces a variety of resources for gardeners to have conversations with their neighbors. Let’s get on with healing the planet one yard at a time."
