Resilient Gardens in a Changing Climate with Linda Gilkeson [VIRTUAL]

Climate change is causing lasting and devastating problems for our world right now. As a hub for information and community-building, the Library is a critical part of the response to this emergency. Climate Future is a community-driven initiative to share knowledge, inspire action and—collectively—change the world for the better by reducing local emissions. 

Our regional climate is changing as the global climate changes, with extreme weather events reaching record levels last year. What does this mean for our food gardens and landscape plants? Join Linda Gilkeson to learn how extreme weather affects plants, including trees, and how you can design resilient food and ornamental gardens to help plants survive 'weird weather'.

For this virtual program, we'll be using Zoom. We will use the "waiting room" feature on Zoom to let participants into the program one by one. 

What you'll need: A computer with speakers (or headphones) or your smartphone or tablet. An email address is required for registration. We will email you the Zoom link in advance of the program.
