Understanding how the extreme rhythms of water and heat determine the stark beauty of the Southwestern landscape requires an eye trained by attention and time.

Knowledge of the natural history, the processes of erosion and recovery, and our enormous water harvesting potential leads to informed landscaping, restoration, and food gardening practices.

Attune to your environment with this series of two classes. These will help you read the wild landscape and create productive food growing environments. Rain catchment, water harvesting earthworks, greywater systems, high desert vegetable gardening, greenhouse practices, and land restoration techniques will be addressed.

This is a two part classes taking place from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday, November 3rd and 4th.
