Cuyamaca College is hosting its fifth annual Sustainable Landscape Conference Thursday, March 7, at the campus performing arts theater, with topics ranging from local resource-conservation efforts to the role of trees in ecological landscapes.
“We will examine sustainable landscaping as a regional issue and focus on the environmental elements of air, earth, water and fire,” said Don Schultz, conference chairman and coordinator of the college’s ornamental horticulture department.
Starting with registration and a continental breakfast at 7 a.m., the conference continues until 4 p.m. with keynote speaker Jeff Fulgham, who has worked for three decades promoting global energy and water conservation. He is currently the chief sales, service, strategy and sustainability officer at Banyan Water, Inc., a Bay Area water management consulting firm. Also on tap are a panel discussion on sustainability in the city and the county moderated by a San Diego County Water Authority official, a trade show highlighting green products and services, and multimedia presentations in the digital theater.
