Landscape For Life five-part workshop

Gardening is a risky business. The weather extremes and seasonal shifts we have witnessed across the world – and in our own landscapes – are requiring deep reflection on our strategies to create conditions for truly successful, beautiful, and healthy gardens. This five-part Landscape for Life program, developed by the U.S. Botanical Garden and the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, will show you how to work with nature in your garden, no matter where you live.

Together we will map and explore your home landscape to identify how it has the potential to clean air and water, reduce flooding, cool our community, combat climate change, and alleviate the pressures being placed on Earth’s ecosystems. Pre-registration is required. Participants who complete all course activities will receive a Certificate of Completion.

Cost: $150; $135 for Botanic Garden members
Location: Nevin Welcome Center
