Fire Smart Landscaping with UC Marin Master Gardener Jim Kasper

Saturday, June 12, 2021

During this presentation by a UC Marin Master Gardener, you’ll hear about best practices and recommendations for adapting fire-smart and drought-tolerant considerations and actions into your landscape. The summer weather brings the opportunity to look around your property and enjoy the resulting new growth in your yard. While doing that, it is also a great time to identify and plan actions to prepare for the drought and the fire season. Jim Kasper joined UC Marin Master Garden in 2011. His gardening areas of interest are California natives with particular attention to garden planning and plant selection for fire-risk mitigation and defensible space. Since a 12-acre fire on public land 1/4-mile from his home, Jim has been involved with various organizations including GGNRA, Marin County Parks, Marin Master Gardeners, fire agencies in Marin County. The event is in partnership with the UC MMG &The Commons Foundation & the Zoom was sponsored by the Friends of the Larkspur Librar
