About the Event

Our speaker on the topic is André Menting. He studied Garden and  Landscape Architecture, specialising in managing public green spaces and  is currently employed by a municipality in the east of the Netherlands.  His passions evolve around creating a better ecological environment on a  local and a global scale. He is searching for ways to involve the  people in his community in increasing biodiversity and supporting local  food production (he is currently setting up a small scale farmer's  market with his husband!). One challenge his community is facing is  Japanese knotweed and he has volunteered his time to educate us about  what he learned about what works and what doesn't in controlling this  invasive species.
