Keep Calm and Garden On: Gardening in the Midst of Climate Change
While world leaders argue over the threat of climate change and its causes, gardeners find ourselves stuck in the literal and figurative trenches making the best of the challenges that face us. How can we best adapt to what is, right now, and make our gardens more resilient throughout the seasons? This talk focuses on key points we should consider when we design our gardens, and provides positive, productive measures for our soils, wildlife, and plants to help ease our concerns over the unknown.
