    Name: MAGC Presents - Home Landscaping in a Changing Climate: Fire Smart, Water Wise, Biodiverse
    Date: February 29, 2020
    Time: 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM PST
    Event Description:

    Co-sponsored by Marin Art & Garden Center, Bee Audacious, California Native Plant Society, and Marin Conservation League

    As the climate warms and the weather gets less predictable, Bay Area home gardeners find themselves facing contradictory directives from public agencies that are each trying to address one part of the looming problem. It seems as though we may be facing a lot of hard choices. Or can we find a way to work with nature to have home landscapes that are resilient to fire and drought, yet still thrive and offer beauty and habitat both for us and other creatures?

    We are putting on this symposium because we believe we can have it all. Taking an integrated and diversified approach simplifies maintenance, produces healthier living spaces and creates natural resilience to temperature swings. Come hear a gathering of experts tell of methods to manage water, enrich soil, and build fire-wise landscapes with thriving plants that encourage biodiversity. Go home re-energized, full of nature-affirming ideas you can apply to your own land. Renewal can happen anywhere. Why not start with your favorite place?

    Includes lunch from Panera Bread, and a wine & cheese reception from 4-6 pm
