Vancouver Island will be greatly affected by our changing climate. Master Gardener Jo-Ann Canning will discuss some of the municipal and regional initiates, and how the home gardener can keep their yards thriving by using some practical and proven techniques. She will review water-wise tips, cultivar selection, and hardscape installations that will mitigate the impact of climate change.
