 Grow Your Soil – A River Friendly Landscaping Practice: 11:00 – 11:45 a.m.

This workshop will include an overview of landscaping here in the American River watershed. You will hear techniques to deal with the drought, the restrictions on irrigation, and what you can do to improve your soil easily with little expense.

Integrated Design:  12:00 – 1:00 p.m.

Integrated Design brings water harvesting features together in your home’s landscape to reduce watering, build healthy soil, optimize seasonal conditions, mitigate urban runoff and grow resources. You will learn how to map your home watershed and what water harvesting techniques work best for your terrain. The integrated design process creates a dynamic landscape that incorporates water harvesting features and other site elements to produce a cohesive relationship between humans and nature.
