 “Don’t Panic – It’s Organic
by Andy Lopez, The Invisible Gardener

Andy Lopez grew up in Puerto Rico watching his mother grow vegetables and fruits without using toxic pesticides.  At this very early age his interest was piqued in gardening. In 1972 Mr. Lopez founded The Invisible Gardener Inc.   A lifelong journey and passion commenced, on all things Organic. He became an authority on soil – living soil – “It’s all about the topsoil” and the destruction of this crucial and very important element needed to not only keep trees healthy, but so essential for general farming and  gardening. Over the years “The Invisible Gardener” has spoken to many prestigious organizations worldwide, including the World Health Organization and Andy has acted as a consultant to the Department of Agriculture. This multi-talented entrepreneur has written a number of books including “Don’t  Panic, It’s Organic.”  Mr. Lopez has a very informative website invisiblegardener.com which features links to his podcasts and blogs, as well as radio and television programs plus his artwork, music and more.

With an ever increasing awareness of the fragility of the planet  Andy Lopez will educate, inform, and entertain  us on easy practical practices that improve the “living soil” and promote healthy trees and plants, as well as suggesting  alternatives to chemical product will give an entertaining and informative presentation on easy practices that improve the soil and promote healthy plants.
