Edible Landscaping for the Mediterranean Climate
Fruiting trees, shrubs and perennials can be water savers and thrive in our Mediterranean climate. Learn how figs, pomegranates, grapes and fruiting olive trees not only are drought tolerant, but, once established, are beautiful in your landscape. Many of our favorite culinary herbs, like rosemary, sage, oregano and thyme, are also great additions to xeriscaped edible gardens. After a brief slide presentation, walk with workshop teacher Ari Tenenbaum in his garden to see and learn about some of his favorite, drought-tolerant edibles.
Ari Tenenbaum is a San Diego native who earned his B. S. in Plant Science from the University of California, Santa Cruz. He has been a licensed landscape contractor since 2009 when he helped found Revolution Landscape, a full service landscaping company that specializes in the design, installation, and maintenance of edible and eco-friendly landscapes. Since its inception, Revolution Landscape has been featured in numerous publications including the SD Union Tribune, Edible San Diego, the La Jolla Light, and many more.
