You probably do a lot already and we hope this Webinar-series will inspire you to apply changes to your organisation for a sustainable future.
Every bit helps!
Water Quality & Consumption
This webinar is on the Water Quality & Consumption-attribute.
How can your garden can enhance its water quality and consumption goals? It is no feat to list up reasons to why water management matters, so the question is rather how?
Learn how the IrisBG community member Naples Botanical Garden, represented by Chad Washburn, has reduced stormwater runoff including improvements in water management through designed wetlands and educational outreach.
Maeve Bassett from San Antonio Botanical Garden talked about the garden's choice in native plants and management practices and Jonathan Wagar from Duke Farms discussed how his institution has reduced water use and improved water quality throughout the grounds.
Please note that the "Sustainability Insights" portion of this webinar was not recorded, but It is now possible to watch the webinar On-Demand (APGA).
