An Urban Garden to a Water Catchment and Sustainable Wildlife Habitat

Speaker: Suzanne Clark

What happens if your newly purchased home doesn’t have your “dream’ garden when you move in? That happened to me.  Five years ago I moved into a Victorian home in downtown Petaluma with a dark back yard full of crabgrass, deformed ornamental plum trees, and boxwood. Could I really convert this land into a sustainable and wildlife habitat with attractive, low-water use plants, drip irrigation, underground rainwater catchment system, and a greywater system in a reasonable time and cost?
