Description
Our gardens are places of beauty, sources of food, and expressions of our creativity. They are also windows into the magic of nature and are inextricably connected to the natural world that sustains us. But can our gardens help clean our air and water, sustain wild plants and animals, and restore ecosystem heath? In this symposium three distinguished speakers explore how our gardening practices can satisfy our desire to create bountiful beauty while helping heal the larger environment. We'll end with a panel discussion and a Q&A with the audience.

Learning Outcomes
Students will discuss techniques for gracefully integrating native plants and ecological processes to create diverse, low- maintenance gardens.

Students will explore the massive restoration project they are transforming a badly damaged creek into a meandering stream that supports abundant wildlife again.

Students will discover how the PlantRight initiative has built a robust network of volunteers, retailers, horticultural and landscape leaders, and state agencies—all working together to keep invasive plants out of California nurseries, gardens, and wildlands.
