Firewise Practices for Home Landscape – Sonoma

October 6 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Free

Come learn how to create a more Firewise home landscape!

In early November 2017, a group of UC Master Gardeners of Sonoma County (UCMGSC) came together to plan how we could best help people who lost their homes in the devastating fires, and how we can now help educate our community at large about firewise landscaping.
We adopted the following definition, developed by Southern California UC Cooperative Extension offices after devastating fires, to guide our work: Firewise Landscaping supports creating and maintaining fire-resistant and sustainable landscapes in the wildland-urban interface. A fire-resistant landscape is an environment where plants and hardscape are maintained so that they do not easily transmit fire and where a defensible space reduces the risk of fire burning on your property.
Our UCMGSC team has developed a series of one page handouts on important Firewise topics and established a web page on the UCMGSC website for important Firewise information for homeowners.
This fall our UCMGSC volunteers will host a half day education workshop on October 6th at the Sonoma Community Center in Sonoma.  This workshop is free of charge to all. Space is limited, so make your reservation now.

This special 1/2 day workshop will be held at:

Sonoma Community Center, Room 110
276 E Napa St, Sonoma
October 6, 2018 from 8:30AM to 12:30PM
