“Tiny Forests” is the featured presentation at the monthly meeting of the Trevose Horticultural Society on Tuesday, July 16, at 7 p.m. at the Bensalem Senior Center, 1850 Byberry Road, Bensalem.

Jim Walter, a long-term Bucks County Master Watershed Steward and Master Gardener, will explain a tiny forest, a dense, fast-growing native woodland the size of a tennis court. Based on an established forest management method developed in the 1970s by Japanese botanist Dr. Akira Miyawaki, tiny forests are being developed all over the world. Learn about this interesting reforestation technique that can help reforest Pennsylvania. 

A member of the Buckingham Township Environmental Advisory committee, Walter earned his Ph.D. from U.C. Berkeley in chemical engineering. He worked in the agricultural chemical industry for many years, ending his career with FMC in Philadelphia.

All meetings are open to the public; a donation of $5 is requested from non-members. For more information, call 856-866-9163, visit trevosegardeners.org or follow on Facebook.
