New Directions in the American Landscape (NDAL) will hold a three day course at Tower Hill Botanic Garden, 11 French Drive, Boylston, Massachusetts beginning Wednesday, February 16 through Friday, February 18, entitled Natural Landscape Design: Meadows & Woods, featuring instructors Henry Art, Ian Caton, Jean Marie Hartman, Sylvia Kaufman, Larry Weaner, and Tom Wessels.  Demand for high-performing, ecologically beneficial landscapes is increasing, and  yet many design and management professionals remain unsure how to incorporate ecological patterns and processes into their work.  This three day course explores how meadow and woodland ecosystems can be replicated in diverse design situations.  Presenters skilled in ecology and design guide participants through the relevant concepts and practical steps necessary for creating beautiful, self-sustaining landscapes.  For complete biographies of the speakers, log on to, where you may also download the registration form.  Registration and refreshments will begin each day at 8:30 am, and a detailed schedule will be sent in the registration packet.  Fees are $210 per day or $585 for the entire course, with a discount for Tower Hill members and students with a current ID.  You may also telephone 203-834-0174, or email, for more information.
