“Gardening is like cooking. It is tempting to cook only with the goal of achieving great taste, with no thought of healthy eating, but that often results in tasty concoctions so full of fat, sugar, and salt that they are deadly in the long run. Similarly, it is tempting to garden only for beauty, without regard to the many ecological roles our landscapes must perform. All too often, such narrow gardening goals result in a landscape so low in ecological function that it drains the vitality from the surrounding ecosystem.”― Douglas W. Tallamy, Nature’s Best Hope: A New Approach to Conservation that Starts in Your Yard
Wild Ones Capital Region New York
In May of 2021, a core group of local citizens came together to found the Capital Region NY chapter, which was granted a charter in September of the same year. Learn more about our leadership team here. New York native plants play an important role in the ecosystem. They should be incorporated into our backyards, farms, and community gardens not restricted to preserves and parks. Our chapter mainly focuses on Albany County and the bordering counties of Columbia, Greene, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, and Schoharie. We do welcome those in other areas who are interested in what we do to attend an event, review our free resources, and read our blog.

Growing a natural habitat garden is also one of the most important things each of us can do to help restore a little order to a disordered world.Ken Druse
