"Resilient Gardens in a Changing Climate", this year's Washington State University Master Gardeners of San Juan County Annual Gardening Workshop will take place from at 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday October 7, 2017 at the Friday Harbor Middle School.
Keynote Presentation: Resilient Gardens in a Changing Climate ~ Dr. Linda Gilkeson
Our regional climate is changing as the global climate changes–but what does this mean for our gardens and landscapes? Dr. Gilkeson will discuss how plants respond to environmental stress and how we can adapt our gardening methods to meet the challanges (and opportunities!) of a changing climate.
Dr. Gilkeson, entomologist, consultant and educator, is the author of Backyard Bounty: The Complete Guide to Year-Round Organic Gardening in the Pacific Northwest, and writes the popular "West Coast Gardening" blog.
