Learn how to create the perfect Bay-friendly landscape for your property under the guidance of a professional landscape architect
If you are interested in designing and constructing a Rain Garden, Bayscape or Edible Bayscape, this FREE workshop is for you. In this hands-on learning experience you will learn the principles of design and how to apply them to solving your storm water problems. GVC Edible/Bayscape architect, Patricia Ceglia, will be the workshop instructor.
Topics include: analyzing your storm water issues, determining location and size, soils issues, preparing the site, selecting and installing native plants, and maintenance requirements. We will tour a demonstration garden on site.
Each participant will prepare a Rain Garden, Bayscape or Edible Bayscape garden design for their own home. You will be provided with the information, reference materials, techniques and lessons learned to prepare your own site design.
Participants will be required to do some “homework” in order to prepare for the workshop. You will need to collect information, measurements, and photos of your site and storm water problem (prior instructions will be provided).
Workshop limited to 10 property owners.
