$30 – $40

Please note that this will be a live, webinar workshop (offered via Zoom) and not a lecture at the Garden.

After a dry winter and spring, many California residents are bracing for another season of catastrophic wildfires this summer.  With climate change and shifts in land management, the intensity and regular occurrence of wildfires will be inevitable in our environment.  The decisions that we make in our own gardens can make a bigger impact than most people realize.  Join Jennifer de Graaf, for a two-part series about how a multi-faceted, interconnected lifetime of decisions in your landscape can help mitigate your risks versus fire.

This is a two-part series webinar:

  1. 26 June 2021 (Sat) @ 10-11am
