Chris Ferrero, gardening speaker, writer and consultant, will lead a workshop on deer defense — how to co-exist with the wiliest of wildlife.

There are lots of ways to garden without sacrificing all of your hard work to marauding deer, she says. We will explore Cornell research-proven methods in three categories: Barriers, Repellents and Alternative Landscape Choices, providing ideas for best-odds deer-resistant landscape plants. Recordings will be available for registered participants.

She is a Cornell Master Gardener from Dutchess County, NY, where in addition to speaking and teaching classes, she has led demonstration garden renovations, organized regional events, and served on teams as a perennials specialist known for particular expertise in shade gardening, flowering shrubs, pollinator-approved planting designs, and native plants as alternatives to invasives.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
