In this lecture, Lynlee Austell will present ways to sustainability in our landscapes, giving joy to all who live, visit, and work therein. Creating a sustainable landscape can be rather simple while keeping it sustainable requires sustainable maintenance practices. These techniques save time, money and habitat while practicing conscientious stewardship of our environment and of those we employ to help us in our gardens. Lynlee will present some of her local projects to aid in the discussion of materials and methods for decreasing inputs into our landscape while getting more out of them. Lynlee Austell-Slayter has an MBA and is a UCCE Master Gardener and a Sustainable Landscape Expert.
Lynlee inherited her love of plants and nature from both her parents and grandparents. Her mother was a botanist and science teacher. Her grandfather collected state fair ribbons for his horticultural talents as did her father. Her father also worked as a florist for some time. When Lynlee was in undergraduate microbiology and described what she wanted to do with her life, someone told her she was naive. Yet, she now lives that intention by helping to preserve our natural environment and helping others see the joy in nature.
