The Private Garden of a Public Gardener (Wayne, PA and Wilmington, DE)

When overseas travel became possible, exotic plants were common cargo on ships all across the world. Unfortunately, many of those plants proved to be far more aggressive outside of their native range. At the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, we explain why some non-native plants are dangerous, how gardeners can prevent further spread of some of the more aggressive species, and how using the right native plant for a particular space can make gardening easier for people and better for the planet.

Hope for Heroes: The Farmer Veteran Coalition

Ask almost any returning war veteran and they'll tell you that the hardest part of the war is not going, it's coming home. The toll it takes on soldiers is often more debilitating to the body and mind than the combat they faced. Many return with scars and baggage that makes it even harder for them to find gainful employment. Fortunately, organizations are helping connect veterans with good jobs and new careers that can literally change and save the lives of these heroes.
