Insects and microorganisms abound in a healthy garden and are, in fact, critical to the life cycle of plant growth and food production. To achieve a balanced ecosystem, one must first identify beneficial insects and provide a habitat for them to thrive. Microorganisms, often imperceptible to the naked eye, also play an essential role in the health of the garden. Join Gar Wang for a discussion of the organic garden's friends and foes. Through her writing and lectures, Gar Wang hopes to inspire others to lead a simpler, sustainable lifestyle. She grows 90% of her family’s food in her Warwick garden.

In Megafire, a world-renowned journalist and forest fire expert travels to the most dangerous and remote wildernesses, as well as to the backyards of people faced with these environmental disasters, to look at the heart of this phenomenon and witness firsthand the heroic efforts of the firefighters and scientists racing against time to stop it—or at least to tame these deadly flames.
From Colorado to California, China to Canada, the narrative hopscotches the globe and takes readers to the frontlines of the battle both on the ground and in the air, and in the laboratories, universities, and federal agencies where this issue rages on. Through this prism of perspectives, Kodas zeroes in on a handful of the most terrifying and tumultuous of these environmental disasters in recent years—the Yarnell Hill Fire in Arizona that took the lives of nineteen elite “hotshot” firefighters, the Waldo Canyon Fire that overwhelmed the city of Colorado Springs—and more in a page-turning narrative that puts a face on the brave people at the heart of this issue. Megafire describes the profound impact of these fires around the earth and will change the way we think about the environment and the essential precariousness of our world.
