Lecture Program

A presentation by Fred Weisensee of Dancing Oaks Nursery
Lecture begins at 10am (doors open about 9:15am).

Our gardens are already experiencing some stressors from climate change with warmer seasons coupled with more frequent drought. The likelihood is this will only increase so it behooves us to improve our garden's reslilience with appropriate plant selection and cultivation. We will explore plants from around the world with low water requirements and heat tolerance that can continue to bring beauty and interest in spite of warmer seasons. We will look at borrowing concepts from regenerative agriculture to help improve soil health and moisture retention while using fewer chemicals.
