Two upcoming California events

Industry News

The two gatherings are to accelerate the pace of change toward more sustainable landscapes in the state.

| April 16, 2014

It is widely known that reforming California’s urban landscapes to use less water, fewer chemicals, and more climate-appropriate plants will yield huge benefits to our state in terms of water conservation, runoff and pollutant reduction, human health, and biodiversity.

Around the state, agencies, organizations and individuals are partnering to implement sustainable landscapes and reap the many benefits for their communities. Learn from their experiences, and join in the conversation about how we can make sustainable landscapes the “new normal” in California.

Get inspired. Join the conversation. Take action!

Join us for a day of ideas, discussions, and problem solving.
