Climate Change and Your Garden

Tuesday, May 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Climate change is already a reality in our lives. The three major challenges it presents are undeniably pressing. Too little water (drought), too much water (atmospheric rivers), and the threat of wildfire are situations we’re dealing with at an accelerated rate.
How do we respond to or prepare our properties for these climate-driven events? In this talk, we’ll explore together actions we can take to minimize the impact of these challenges on our lives, homes, and landscapes. Simply stated, we’ll talk about how to prepare your garden for either too little available water or too much water. We’ll also discuss how we can drastically reduce the risk of wildfire on our property. Join us as we start the dialog about this important topic.

Presenter Lori Palmquist is a UC Master Gardener who describes herself as a serial presenter, as she has given over 500 irrigation talks and trainings around the state for the past 15 years. She also claims to have irrigation water running through her veins. Lori’s greatest hope is to inspire people to take action to use less water and still enjoy thriving, beautiful gardens well into the future, no matter how much water shows up.
