Join us for the Xeriscape Horticulture for Professionals workshop, presented by the Okanagan Xeriscape Association, featuring Egan Davis from the City of Richmond, talking about the Long Grass Movement in Passive Turf Areas.

Xeriscape is about gardening with nature: using techniques that conserve water, and plants that use less water and thrive in hotter summers.

The workshop will cover these topics presented by Okanagan xeriscape experts:

• Indigenous and xeriscape plant selection

• Slope restoration

• Erosion control

• Soil and mulch

• Xeriscape design and maintenance

• Low-water irrigation and new irrigation products

Tickets are $165 per participant and include coffee, tea and snacks, followed by a lunch buffet.
