The student chapter of the American Meteorology Society and the Garden Commons invite you to come learn about how to make our garden more resilient in the face of climate chaos.

We'll discuss our changing climate and the El Niño effect; how the USDA hardiness zones that guide our planting have already been changed; what grows as the climate gets worse; and the impacts on precipitation and what we can grow.

We'll be installing a rain gauge at the Garden Commons to begin gathering data that will help inform our watering plans in the future.

This is part of the spring series of Garden Workshops hosted by the Garden Commons, a shared, collectively-managed space, open to participation any time from students, staff, faculty, and community members. Everyone who comes is welcome to share in the harvest!
