Free Fire-Wise Landscape Workshop

Hot, dry weather is not only challenging in terms of water supply, but Southern California is known as one of the most active fire regions in the state. To increase awareness of what homeowners can do to protect their property, a free joint-agency fire-wise landscape workshop will be held on Tuesday, September 1, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at San Diego Botanic Garden, located at 230 Quail Gardens Drive in Encinitas.

Workshop attendees will learn about protecting their home from fires while reducing water used for irrigation through installation of fire-resistive landscapes. The free workshop will be taught by local native plant expert and author Greg Rubin and will cover the basic principles of landscape zoning and hydration, with an overview of plant selection, installation, watering, and maintenance. 

Following the workshop, all attendees will be granted free admission into San Diego Botanic Gardens to explore fire safe and water efficient landscapes.
