Every garden is part of a larger ecosystem, and understanding some basic ecological principles can help you make better design, planting, and management decisions for your garden. From learning what ecosystem you live in to how food webs work, Sylvan Kaufman will introduce you to concepts that explain how a designed landscape interacts with its surroundings and how it can be made more sustainable.
Whether you are new to sustainable landscaping practices or a longtime practitioner, you will learn the science background you need to understand how your landscape can support clean water, improve wildlife habitat, and lower maintenance costs while providing a healthy, beautiful environment for you to live in. The class will be held indoors and outdoors.
