Sustainable Home Gardening Class Wednesday at Center For Urban Horticulture


UW Botanic Gardens’ Center for Urban Horticulture (3501 NE 41st Street) is having a series of Wednesday classes, called "Landscaping for Life - Sustainable Home Gardening," starting on Wednesday from 6:30-9pm

The information says:
Are you a homeowner who wants to create and maintain your own healthy, sustainable landscape? Through instructor-led presentations, class discussions, and activities, you will deepen your understanding of how to get the most out of water in your garden, how to build healthy soils with minimal outside inputs, how to use native and climate-adapted plants for the Pacific Northwest, and how to find the most environmentally-friendly landscape materials.  
Students will analyze their own home landscape focusing on soils, water, plants, and use of materials. Landscape for LifeTM was developed by the US Botanical Garden and Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center to the University of Texas in Austin.
The cost is $150 for the 4 classes through April 8th. Register Online or call 206-685-8033.
