Lecture – Texas’ Own Coral Reefs: Weathering the Storm by Adrienne Correa

Hurricane Harvey dumped 13 trillion gallons of rain on southeast Texas in August of 2017.

Dr. Correa shares ongoing research connecting the Gulf Coast, extreme weather, and reef ecosystems.

Dr. Adrienne Correa is Assistant Professor in the BioSciences Department at Rice University.

Class – Low Volume Irrigation

Author: José Manuel Suárez. Source: Wikimedia Commons.

A garden that conserves precious water resources is a rewarding investment. Keeping water on our property is good for our gardens, as well as the health of the city’s water supply. Through micro or low volume irrigation, we can eliminate water runoff into the street and water more deeply for healthier root systems. This class will teach design, installation and maintenance of drip and micro-spray systems.

Instructor Angela Chandler teaches several popular classes for Urban Harvest.

Chris
Authored By Chris Wells

Adventure is my middle name. Well… actually it’s French. Literally, it’s Christopher French Wells. But the spirit of adventure lives in me, and has always inspired me to go out and seek new experiences. I’ve traveled to Europe, Mexico and South America, as well as few places in the U.S. I’ve seen different places with different cultures, learned some things about humanity and about myself in particular. My goal is to lend my unique perspective, carved out of my own triumphs and tragedies, fears and fancies encountered during my years of college and international travel, to the other great voices of this blog. Hopefully to the enjoyment of our readers…
