Slow and Steady 

Wednesday, Mar 20 2013
Despite the extremely decelerated pace of most gastropods, they do tend to get feared and ostracized for their profound lack of what most would consider adorable animal features. San Francisco Botanical Garden Society hopes to impart some dignity to the species with the educational program “The Secret Life of Slugs and Snails.” Daniel George Gordon, author of the similarly named The Secret World of Slugs and Snails: Life in the Very Slow Lane, reveals the feelings, relationships, and plant preferences of these seemingly featureless creatures. Gardeners will come away with some new tips and tricks to make friends with the fellas instead of going on a murderous rampage when they get into those homegrown strawberries. But for better or worse, Gordon, who also penned The Eat-a-Bug Cookbook, won’t be serving up denuded escargot after the talk.
