For many years some gardeners have been interested in yards and gardens that are more similar to natural habitats than rows of crops. As people spent more time outdoors recently, the concept of “rewilding” some of our more manicured spaces has generated even more attention. This course will begin by exploring why we have the kinds of lawns and gardens we do and then consider alternatives. While there will be some practical information about specific plants that could be used for a more naturally sustainable landscape, the focus of the course will be on helping students assemble the knowledge and resources to design and manage their own yards and gardens.

This course will meet in person at the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society.

Pre-registration is required. Attendance is limited to 40 – sign up today!
