WORKSHOP: Integrating Sustainable Practices into Your Native Garden

January 25 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

CNPS-San Diego is excited to present a day-long workshop that includes five presentations on understanding symbiotic relationships in your native garden and incorporating sustainable and regenerative practices. Topics include bringing wilderness into your backyard, harvesting rainwater, understanding and regenerating your soil, permaculture and agroecology, and tips and tricks from design to install from a recent landscape installation. The workshop will be held in the beautiful, contemporary auditorium of the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park. An extended 80-minute lunch ‘hour’ will allow you to picnic or dine in the park as you discuss and absorb the morning presentations. Nearby exhibit native gardens will be available for viewing.
