Sustainable Landscape Design Workshop

Sunday, January 27 at 9 am (PT)

at Tucson Botanical Gardens

Sunday, Jan. 27

9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Learn how to map out the natural story of the place where you live. With guidance from Dan Dorsey of the Sonoran Permaculture Guild, Prescott College and Pima Community College, you will put together an exciting, long-term plan for your sustainable home and landscape — one that takes care of people and the environment at the same time. We’ll show you how to put together all the strategies you may have heard of for sustainable living — rainwater harvesting, gardening, low-water native plants, greywater recycling and more — into a holistic and sustainable design. We will also practice the skills and strategies needed for effective design, such as mapping the natural and human-made forces that affect a site and using simple elevation finding tools. Bring a sketch of the site or yard you want to design.
