Solving Landscape Challenges with Sustainable Solutions: Case Studies and a Garden Tour
Saturday, February 16, 10am & Sunday, February 17, 2pm
Eli Nielsen and Andrew D’Arezzo of EcoSense Sustainable Landscapes are back with something a little bit different for those looking for the hidden potential in their backyard — combining a classroom presentation with an onsite visit. Nielsen and D’Arezzo present several formerly barren landscapes facing common Tucson-area challenges such as flooding and erosion and illustrate their conversion to beautiful outdoor spaces featuring vibrant native plant specimens. These sites incorporate innovations in passive and active rainwater harvesting, alternative irrigation strategies, shade trees, and colorful pollinator-attracting native plants. In the classroom on Saturday, review basic sustainable landscape principles and discuss the solutions developed for the case sites. On Sunday, join us for a site visit to see the solutions in action first-hand.
