Learn to Naturescape! Naturescaping is the practice of designing (or redesigning) your landscape so that it reduces water use and decreases stormwater runoff while saving you time, money and energy. This introductory workshop introduces the core concepts of naturescaping, and also explores:
- pollution prevention through the reduction/elimination of chemical use
- how native plants naturally resist pests & tolerate drought conditions while attracting native birds, butterflies and other beneficial pollinators to your garden
- basic site planning principals, and many other great natural gardening & design tips
Workshop participants will visit a nearby naturescaped project to see design principles in action, and receive a comprehensive workbook and native plant to help them get started. Even if you decide that you want to enlist the help of a landscaper or designer, you'll have the framework to make decisions and communicate your desires to your contractor effectively.
