OUTSIDE: Sustainable Landscape Collaborative 2021
A hybrid 2-day experience
October 21 - 22, 2021
Increasing the adoption of sustainable landscape practices will help create a more vibrant, healthy, and sustainable future for all Floridians. Rapid population growth, water responsibility issues, land conservation challenges, sea-level rise, coastal community resilience, biodiversity loss, and climate change are a few examples of the challenges facing the Florida landscape. These vital issues in Florida require us to take action and change certain landscaping behaviors and patterns, so we can contribute to the solutions needed in the future.
Last year, we held our first OUTSIDE Collab event. With an attendance of 400+ people, the virtual event was a success, providing the first step toward collaborating on a large scale and sharing the message of OUTSIDE to Floridians across the state.
The way we achieve our purpose for OUTSIDE is going to be determined by all of us. By coming together and working collaboratively, we can look for specific actions and solutions which we can apply toward achieving our purpose. We invite you to join us at OUTSIDE 2021 this fall, where we will shift the Florida landscape paradigm together.
