Canopy Watch founder and president David Anderson discusses tree climbing and developing relationships with the forest with Idaho Matters on Wednesday, September 12, 2018.
Canopy Watch is a guided tree climb at the Idaho Botanical Garden that allows people to learn how to use eco-friendly climbing equipment and get a bird's eye view from the flora of Boise. We meet with the organizers and learn how to swing through the trees.
Home gardeners are often frustrated by Idaho’s dry climate. Finding the plants best suited for your garden is not always easy. Toby Hemenway is an author who teaches and writes about permaculture and sustainable gardens and he’s coming to Boise.
“Rather than try to learn permaculture from a theoretical point of view, or try to understand it all, it’s a lot easier to just get involved in one aspect of it,” Hemenway says.
He says water conservation is an easy, gateway into learning permaculture.
