Virtual Sustainable Practices for Water-Wise Gardening

Today | August 08, 2020 | 11:00 am — 1:00 pm

Online Event

No resource is as vital to California’s urban centers, farms, industry, recreation, scenic beauty and environmental preservation as water.

Experts predict increased temperatures, less snow, earlier snowmelt and a rise in sea level could have major implications for water supply, flood management and ecosystem health.

 “Sustainable Practices for Waterwise Gardening” will focus on permaculture and sustainable gardening techniques that address how you can do your part to protect this vital resource in your home garden.
Lori Caldwell, owner of CompostGal Consulting will cover topics that include sheet-mulching, the benefits of compost and much, bio-intensive edible gardening, hydrozoning, using recycled water, drip irrigation and native plants will also be covered.

Lori Caldwell, is an Alameda County Master Composter, a Stopwaste Educator, a Bay-Friendly Qualified Landscape Professional and an avid edible gardener. She has been teaching sustainable gardening classes since 2007.
