The water measurement has reached the paperback and stimulated landscape transformations. Ecological connectivity includes responsible landscaping with respect to the flora and fauna present, assisting pollinators, and understanding the constraints resulting from climate and soil conditions in western Nevada.
Comstock Seeds General Manager Ed Kleiner will speak about landscaping trends, including drought tolerant specifications for native and non-native species that have a track record in our less watery climate.
Kleiner will cover all aspects of eco landscaping, including dealing with harmful weeks and NDOA weed controls.
After earning a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from the University of Nevada, Reno, Kleiner started his seed business 34 years ago. Over the past 20 years, he has put much of his experience into developing his 43 hectare seed farm in Gardnerville. The seed business was sold to Schaff Enterprises three years ago. Kleiner remains with Comstock Seed as General Manager. Today, Comstock Seed focuses primarily on local seed collections for its customer base in the Sierras, Mojave and Great Basin.
