Women in Horticulture Book Club: Silent Spring by Rachel Carson
UPDATE: The book club meeting will now take place online via zoom.
Meet up with the Women in Horticulture Book Club online via Zoom to discuss Rachel Carson’s classic Silent Spring. During the seventeen years she worked for the US Fish and Wildlife Service, Rachel Carson learned about the problems of pesticides in the environment and the effects on people, plants, and animals. Undaunted by the chemical companies’ hostility and by the public’s support for pesticides, she wrote Silent Spring, which caused a major shift in public consciousness about the environment.
This event is free. Everyone is welcome!
A free version of Silent Spring is available here.
The comfort of your home!
