Presentation on fire-wise landscaping
The Glen Ellen Forum is sponsoring a discussion on March 21, 1-4 p.m. on how to create and maintain a fire-wise, sustainable garden that supports biodiversity while meeting Sonoma County code requirements.
Learn about plant selection, placement and maintenance that can preserve and even add to the wildlife habitat while improving fire safety on your property and your neighborhood.
The event takes place at the Glen Ellen Community Church’s Mayflower Hall on O’Donnell Lane.
The three-hour workshop will entail:
- Recommendations for fire-wise landscaping in the 0-5-feet, 5-30-feet and 30-100-feet defensible space zones, with specific plant and design suggestions.
- Practical ways to reconcile sometimes conflicting guidelines so you can have a diverse, energy saving, and water-and fire-wise landscape.
- A practical understanding of what it means to be sustainable in an ever-changing California climate.
- Resources for how to move forward with your landscape and community.
