Today’s gardens need to do multiple jobs: conserve water, create wildlife habitat, and be beautiful and inviting spaces. Longer and drier summers are requiring a shift in the plant selection, siting, and installation methods to create and sustain these new types of gardens. Water usage in our urban areas is becoming more expensive and we need to create a new gardening paradigm. Jason Jorgensen will show you how to adapt to these challenges in this class.
This talk will cover an introduction to our Pacific Northwest climate, summer-dry gardening history and inspiration, suitable plant choices, planting techniques, and gardens of inspiration. You will leave the workshop inspired and ready to tackle new gardening challenges.
