The New Sustainable Landscape In The Donor Garden
March 14 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Sustainable landscaping is about much more than choosing the right plants. It’s about
- Creating healthy soil
- Capturing rainwater
- Minimizing maintenance
- Encouraging nature’s protective workforce
- Creating beauty year round
Diane Downey will take you through how we converted a parched bit of ground into a beautiful sustainable donor garden at the San Marcos Historical Society.
