The winter is a great time to plan and incorporate sustainable systems into your landscape and garden. In this course, we will introduce sustainable strategies participants can use in their home gardens to reduce environmental impact, utilize nature’s resources, and promote biodiversity. Participants will also learn about the North Carolina Botanical Garden’s sustainable features and LEED Platinum facilities, including the Garden’s focus on conserving water, reducing waste through composting, utilizing local and natural materials in landscapes and hardscapes, reducing energy, and more.
This class will be offered online via Zoom Meeting. Link and other information for connecting will be sent to registrants the week of the class.
