Resilient Landscaping: Gardening in the Defensible Space Zone. Learn how to create and maintain a fire-wise and sustainable landscape that supports biodiversity and meets County code requirements. We can help you with plant selection, placement, and maintenance to preserve and enhance wildlife habitat, while keeping your property and neighborhood fire-wise and sustainable.

This two-hour workshop will allow plenty of time for questions, and will provide:

  • Recommendations for fire-wise landscaping in the 0-5’, 5-30’, and 30-100’ defensible space zones.
  • Practical ways to reconcile the sometimes conflicting guidelines to achieve a beautiful, biodiverse, fire-wise landscape that conserves precious water and energy.
  • A practical understanding of what it means to be sustainable in an ever-changing California climate.
  • Resources for how to move forward with your landscape and community.

This workshop is focused on Petaluma and the South Sonoma County communities, although all are welcome.

This event is being produced by Resilient Landscapes Coalition (Sonoma Ecology Center, Sonoma County Master Gardeners, Habitat Corridor Project, Fire Safe Sonoma).
