Mother-in-laws, Willows and Green Chile Stew:
How to Landscape to Your Environment
Friday, July 26, Noon to 1 p.m.
Howe Conference Room, 5th floor, Briscoe Library
Recently, President Henrich shared this comment and request that he received, about the landscaping of the Long Campus:
I have been with the Health Science Center for more than 22 years and I have always been very proud of the beauty of our campus…. I have tried adding many of the same selections to my own landscaping. But it has been difficult to go to a nursery and get the same plant, even with pictures. I was thinking it would certainly promote xeriscaping if we could find out the names of the plants used around our campus… Just a thought to promote water conservation. Thank you for your time.
The Libraries and Facilities Management will host a program at noon on Friday, July 26, for anyone who shares an interest in planting and maintaining beautiful, drought-tolerant landscapes like those on our campus. Dave Brahm, Manager of Landscape and Grounds for the UT Health Science Center, will discuss how to use a diverse palate of native plant material to create a colorful landscape that is durable and suited to our climate.
Brahm, who has been the grounds manager at the Health Science Center for 25 years, has a Masters of Science degree in Horticulture from Iowa State University and is a State of Texas licensed irrigator.
The program is open to everyone, and attendees are invited to bring their lunches.
Susan Hunnicutt, Special Projects Librarian
