Climate Resiliency in Community Gardens

August 26, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Learn about design principles, green infrastructure, native plants, and other strategies to enhance climate resiliency in community gardens

Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time. Learn about design principles, green infrastructure, native plants, and other strategies to enhance climate resiliency in community gardens facing changing seasonal temperatures and flooding. Learn about the role that community gardens play in addressing climate change through biodiversity and sustainable gardening practices.

Garden by the Bay is the first TestBeds (testbeds.org) site, an initiative that reuses architectural prototypes in new community garden structures. Participants can explore their new structure: a combination of a greenhouse, community room, storage shed, and covered outdoor space, completed in September 2022.

This workshop is presented in partnership with the Urban Park Rangers.
