Landscape for Life - Part 4 of 5 - Canceled

This five-part course is well-suited for the beginning gardener or those looking for ways to be more sustainable on their land. Landscape for Life shows you sustainable methods for working with nature, your soil, and the local climate to create a garden that's healthier for humans and the environment. The sessions cover soils, water and its application, harvesting, plant selection, gardening to attract wildlife, and landscape construction materials. Leave each week with homework that will result in your personal landscape plan for depicting your home structures, soil types, areas of sun and shade, water and wing flow, and current plantings. This plan will help guide your decisions as you make your landscape more sustainable!
