Presenter: Cassy Aoyagi
Our understanding of what puts homes and properties in danger is evolving. We now know that flying embers are most often responsible for home ignition and that homes can burn while nearby foliage remains intact. We also know that steps we took to save water in drought have made us more vulnerable to fire, flooding and mudslides. So where do we go from here? Cassy Aoyagi will discuss the 10 steps we can take in our gardens to protect our properties and LA.
Cassy Aoyagi is the president of FormLA® Landscaping and a board member of the thought leading LA Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council. She believes native landscaping can save LA, broadly improving the city’s resilience.
Aoyagi’s work includes several fire-wise demonstration gardens, including two fire station gardens. She has helped property owners rebuild after fires and is currently working on a series of public fire-wise tours and talks for 2020.
