Fall is for Planting: Water-Wise & Rain-Ready Landscaping Workshop

Tue, September 21, 2021, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This webinar will focus on techniques to take advantage of the coming rainy season to establish a healthy, waterwise garden. Whether that means upgrading from your drought stressed lawn or reviving your existing landscape, we’ll discuss:

  • Why fall is the best time for planting
  • Lawn conversions
  • Keeping water on site with rain catchment and rain gardens
  • IPM solutions for seasonal pests, with a spotlight on gophers, moles, and raccoons

Sponsored by the City of Santa Rosa.
The workshop will be taught by the delightful Suzanne Bontempo, who is a certified Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Advocate, a Bay Friendly Qualified Landscaper, Qualified Water Efficient Landscaper (QWEL) certified, and a Master Composter. Suzanne has worked as a professional gardener for over 20 years and loves teaching folks how to grow bountiful gardens that are also safe and healthy for you, your family, and the environment.
