Interested in making your home and garden more sustainable? The Sustainable Landscaping educational series instructs homeowners on how to create and maintain healthy and beautiful landscapes using native plants, soils and the climate to minimize impacts on our local watersheds. Homeowners learn how to work with nature, no matter where they live, whether they garden in a city or suburban lot, a 20-acre farm or a common area of a condominium.
The cost of the program is $30 which covers the cost of class materials, soil test and optional site visit.
For more information or to register for this program, please email the Cooperative Extension Office or call 804-751-4401.
You won't just learn about sustainable gardening concepts; you will apply the concepts to your own landscape!
