BAEE board members, Karen Ringstrand and Mary Page Hickey, attended the presentation by Matt Bright, entitled "Schoolyard Native Gardens and What Home Gardeners Can Learn From Them". A group of more than seventy people heard Matt explain how the schoolyard program can be adapted to individual gardens. He provided interesting insights on the value of planting not just native plants, but groups of species that appear together in native habitats.

Karen gave a brief introduction to BAEE and its book, Native Plants of the Mid Atlantic, and noted that BAEE has already awarded $46,000 in grants, including the one to Earth Sangha in support of their Schoolyard Garden program.
