Learn how to successfully work around the many challenges of gardening in the saturated soils and wet site conditions found here in the Gulf South, and how to instead look at this as an opportunity to lean into the on-site situations.  Dr. Damon Abdi, Assistant Professor of Landscape Horticulture with the LSU AgCenter Hammond Research Station will discuss how you can design landscapes that effectively manage excess water and add aesthetic interest to create sustainable solutions that enhance our environment.  Registration recommended. Members are free; non-members pay site admission ($5 for adults).
