Be A Climate Change Gardener with Cloud Layer Gardening

March 11, 2023 @ 9:30 am 11:00 am

Included with admission, free for Conservancy members

Come learn transforming activities for yourself, your garden, and your bioregion. We will learn about how to garden with layers of moisture from the Clouds.

Texas alone produces more greenhouse gases than other countries. With all that carbon being released, we can do our part with cloud layer gardening. We can address this problem by keeping the unseen moisture in water vapor in the local water cycle available for soil and plants. When you have thriving microbes, you store carbon! By fostering relationships with nature, we keep moisture in the land. This is done by layering, building, and texturing the landscape like clouds using berms, swales, tall grasses, walls, and trees.
