January 25: Marcy Adzich “Edible Urban Ecology — Food Forests and Beekeeping in our Urban Community”

marcy-adzich2016Marcy Adzich has been exploring the flora and fauna of built and natural landscapes since she was a child growing up on the outskirts of surburbia near Edmonton, Alberta. Always bringing home tadpoles, baby birds and various plants, Marcy looked for ways to bring “wildness” back to her home and the ever increasing, constructed landscape. Over the past 2 decades,Marcy has dedicated herself to developing skills and knowledge of local ecology, permaculture practices and food systems from Oregon to Ontario.

Presently, Marcy has the rewarding opportunity to fulfill the manager role of Ecology Park- a 5 acre nature sanctuary managed by GreenUP, a local non profit environmental organization. She is currently directing the Community Beekeeping Program as well as the “Planting Our Fruiture” initiative, encouraging the integration of local food systems with urban forest and residential planning. Marcy’s passion is fun, interactive environmental programming that focuses on the relationships between people ‘s needs and the connections to the immediate natural environment.
