UC Davis to host SmartLandscape Initiative webinar
UC Davis will host a SmartLandscape Initiative webinar called, “The Challenge to Meet California’s Landscape Regulation.” It will be open to the public and be held Sept. 27 at 2 p.m. Eastern. The presenters will be Don Franklin, CID, CLIA, CLWM, and Dr. David Fujino. Cost will $35 for Irrigation Association members and $50 for non-members.
The future of horticulture requires a bold new perspective to remain sustainable in the face of climate change, consumer demand for beautiful landscaping and declining young talent in the industry. Prolonged periods of drought continue to put a strain on limited water resources. While the latest irrigation technology has the potential to improve water efficiency, there is still more to learn about how to best implement this technology into water-conserving landscapes. There is great potential for reducing water waste while creating beautiful landscapes. This webinar will discuss the work done through the SmartLandscape Initiative and how this hub for research, teaching and outreach will help bridge the knowledge gap and make this vision a reality.
