Summer Short Course: Gardening As If the World Depends on Us
Start Date 07/20/2017
End Date 07/20/2017
Description Worried about the world? Take action! Just by being a gardener, you are already making a big difference. Gardens offer so many opportunities to link with nature and help the world. Learn from gardeners who rallied their acreage in backyards large and small to make a difference. Discuss how you can ally with nature to make the world a better place for all creatures, from 21st century versions of “victory gardens” to pollinator plants, native shrubs and bird forage. We will also take scenic excursions into cover-the-earth density plantings, lawn alternatives, herbs and drought-tolerant suggestions. The results are ravishing — these gardens bristle with beauty and overflow with pride. With a trowel in hand, you can help to save the earth.

These courses are also open to the public. Sign-up sheets will be available after every session to confirm your interest in CEUs.
