International Water Conservation Conference Set

Hello from Albuquerque, NM, home of the Xeriscape Council of New Mexico and the setting for the International Water Conservation Conference.

Each year the Xeriscape Council gathers together a group of extraordinary speakers to present the latest research and the newest thinking in how to solve some of our most challenging water and growing issues. The conference begins in the morning and I’m looking forward to learning more about this year’s theme–“Watershed-Foodshed.”

I’ll be blogging from here, providing some topic highlights that I think other gardeners in the West will be interested in. I’m especially looking forward to hearing the Global Water Keynote given by Maude Barlow, the National Chairperson of the Council of Canadians and co-founder of the Blue Planet Project–a global water initiative.

Thursday morning’s other speakers include Dr. Andrew Parker on the topic of “Biomimicry and Design from Nature” and Dave Gutzler discussing the impact of climate change on water supplies here in the desert southwest.

I have to tell you that I look foward to this two-day conference all year long. Not only is it informative, it’s a chance to hear industry leaders discuss topics that are near and dear to my heart: water issues, food production, climate change and energy challenges.  I’m looking forward to sharing the highlights with you during and after the conference.

I hope you’ll keep reading and comment on my posts by clicking on the “comment” link.
