Description

Ecologically sound landscapes are adapted to local environmental conditions and require fewer inputs to achieve success. Learn how to measure, inventory, and analyze a site; then make a conceptual design and planting plan using the “right plant, right place” approach. Broaden your design perspective, increase biodiversity in the landscape with native plants, decrease space dedicated to lawn, and create habitats that benefit insects, birds, and other fauna. Dress for the weather. A detailed materials list is available on our website mtcubacenter.org/education
It is recommended that students complete the Native Plants of Spring, Summer, and Fall, and Sustainable Landscape Techniques before enrolling in this course.

This program takes place in person at Mt. Cuba Center from 1-4 PM on six Wednesdays: February 7 through March 13 (Optional project evaluation: March 20) (Rain Date: Thursday, March 27).
