Ray Mims, USBG Conservation and Sustainability Horticulturist
Bartholdi Park has recently undergone a renovation to upgrade accessibility, safety, and sustainability. This walking tour will highlight the park's history and new gardens, as well as the Sustainable Sites Initiative--a comprehensive rating system for sustainable landscapes, meant to encourage the design and development of healthy, productive landscapes. Tour participants will also hear about the Landscape for Life program that highlights these principles for home gardeners. Come join Ray, rain or shine! Please note: This tour is held outdoors. We suggest bringing sunscreen, protective clothing, and water. The tour is cancelled in the event of extreme weather conditions, including thunderstorms.
