Webinar: Resilient Gardens – Come Hell or High Water!
November 24, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
OHS member Edythe Falconer will discuss strategies for unpredictable and extreme weather, and how soil is truly mother earth. You’ll learn how your garden can be water-independent through the use of trees, shrubs, and plants that can tolerate heat and drought, and the importance of islands of light and shade in your garden.
This presentation will be a free Webinar. There is no registration required. Please consider supporting the future activities of the OHS though renewing your membership or joining for $15/yr, or though a donation.
