Water Neutral Landscapes – Putting it All Together to See The Big Picture

November 7, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Do you want landscaping that is more resilient for today and the climate changes ahead and less dependent on municipal or well water? Here is your opportunity to learn how many of the individual principles used to “design for water” can be integrated with a whole systems approach and a unified plan. This class touches on all of the applications that are covered in our Green Home and Garden series – not in detail, but to address how they may be integrated. Learn how rain water in soil and cisterns, greywater, plants that require less water, pervious surfaces, and gardening and irrigation practices can be integrated into a water neutral landscape.

The class will include a site visit to state-of-the-art examples of these principles.

Class registration fee: $20 before September 14th, $25 after September 14th

Golden Love is a horticulturalist, certified arborist, licensed landscape contractor and lifelong avid gardener who has worked in sustainable landscaping for nearly 30 years. He specializes in local landscapes that are “water neutral” and is an expert on rain harvesting and greywater systems.
