Beds Newly Mulched with Rice Straw-PADG
Are you ready for a fire? Living in the wildland-urban interface, as many of us do, people and homes are at risk from wildfires. While there are no guarantees your home will escape, landscaping around your home can help protect it. Learn about Defensible Space, plants that resist fire and what you can do right now, and in the future, to make sure your home is protected. It doesn’t take a Camp Fire (the fire that destroyed the town of Paradise CA last year) to destroy homes: two years ago the home of one of the speakers' neighbors, in San Jose, burned to the ground in a 100-acre grass fire.

Create a fire safety plan, grow the right plants and take steps to protect your home and family.
