This presentation deals with the challenges facing gardeners during this time of rapid climate change. Climate change predictions are now becoming possible at community or local levels. But how do we address and adapt to these? A brief history of climate change issues will be followed by environmental impacts of global warming, and how gardeners can adjust today to take steps for the future.
