    Rosemont Preserve Tour Saturday, March 24th, 9-11am - Fire & Flood Landscape Resilience with Cassy Aoyagi

    Join FormLA Landscaping president Cassy Aoyagi in the Rosemont Preserve to learn about the impact of landscapes on LA’s overall resilience.

    Post-fire and slide it is more critical than ever that we take great care with what we introduce to our gardens and wildspaces. Authentic foothill-native plants protect wildspaces and homes. They stay lush and leafy in both drought and deluge and, therefore, do a better job of resisting fire, whereas many plants promoted as drought-tolerant are highly flammable. Their roots of natives also help protect slopes from mudslide.

    In 2017, Rosemont Preserve restored and re-wilded slopes close to homes. Volunteers removed invasive plants and replaced them with native plants native to the LA foothills. It now serves as a great model for landscaping at the urban-wildspace interface.

    If you are looking to restore a slope or simply make your garden and LA more resilient, this is a great opportunity to see what can be accomplished. We hope to see you there!
