Mondays, October 22 – November 5, 10:00 am – Ecological Landscaping Techniques
Decisions we make in our gardens today can have large impacts on the landscapes of tomorrow. How do we ensure the long term sustainability of our backyards, business parks and public spaces? Identify and address these potential problems by taking a comprehensive look at the landscape through the eyes of designers, horticuturists and botanists, in this three part New England Wild Flower Society class, to be held on three successive Mondays, October 22 (10 – 3), October 29 (10 – 3) and November 5 (10 – 2) at Garden in the Woods in Framingham. Receive hands-on training in soil health and composting, plant ID and selection, storm water management and organic techniques – all filtered through the concepts of modern design.
