    Name: Laguna Beach Garden Club Meeting
    Date: April 9, 2021
    Time: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PDT
    Event Description:
    The Laguna Beach Garden Club is excited to welcome Deborah Shaw to the April 9th meeting,
    where she will highlight the biological wealth that humanity enjoys through art. These artworks
    discussed are selected for inclusion in The New York Botanical Garden’s Fourth Triennial exhibition,
    which is a partnership of the American Society of Botanical Artist and The New York Botanical Garden
    and devoted to the biological diversity in cultivated utilitarian plants. The exhibition is scheduled in fall
    of 2021 to travel to The Huntington Library, Art Museum and Botanical Gardens.
    Ms. Shaw will detail how these plants have lessons to teach about the evolution and future potential of
    our botanical heritage. Deborah will share fascinating stories by these useful plants as we seek to increase
    the resilience of what we grow.
    In our recent past, agriculture has focused on an increasingly narrower range of important crops, leading
    to greatly reduced genetic diversity. Lack of diversity raises the risk of widespread insecurity from
    changing climate, environmental stresses, and susceptibility to disease. Heirloom varieties play a role in
    increasing genetic diversity, as do wild relatives. The genetic material contained in a broader range of
    cultivated plants and their wild relatives can serve as building blocks for “updating” the resiliency of our
    crops and gardens.
    There is a great urgency to the issues of plant diversity and environmental crisis. Participate with
    the Laguna Beach Garden Club via a special Members Only Zoom on April 9th at 10am, when Deborah
    Shaw will share her presentation on the evolution and future potential of our botanical heritage.
