Creating a Sustainable Home Landscape

In 21st-century Southern California, we are experiencing significant changes in the availability of water and space.  We are surrounded by a built-environment deficient in the regenerative resources of natural wilderness.  Yet there is an instinctive bond between human beings and nature, and a well-designed landscape can be responsive to its inhabitants in powerful ways.

At the March 24 NUFF Forum, Mike Sullivan, a licensed landscape architect and Fullerton resident, will discuss “Everything You Didn’t Know You Wanted to Know about Creating a Sustainable Landscape.”  Mike will share what he has learned about creating environments that meet our needs for both beauty and practicality.  We will see exciting examples of how nature and technology can work together to create new self-supporting, aesthetically pleasing, sustainable gardens.

By wisely using items such as recycled and repurposed materials, regionally adaptive plants, edible plants, rainwater harvesting, and solar energy, we can improve our home environments.

With more than 25 years of experience, Mike has lots to tell.  He will show slides of beautiful spaces he has designed over many years, including award-winning landscapes in SoCal as well as international projects of distinction.  Mike’s sense of humor and knowledge of his field will surely entertain, educate and inspire.

The NUFF Forum will be held in the Osborne Room, Fullerton Public Library, at 6:45 PM on Monday March 24.
