Dates:March 18, 2017
Meets:Sa from 11 AM to 12 N
Location:Main House Lecture Room 1
Instructor:Larry Weaner
Fee: $20.00

All too often we design our gardens and landscapes with static compositions of carefully placed and managed plants. But our approach can be more dynamic-and arguably more rewarding-by building upon ecological processes as well as plants' innate tendencies to reproduce and proliferate. Using examples from client projects and his property, Larry Weaner illustrates how this organic, give-and-take approach to design can result in low-maintenance, beautiful landscapes that marry human intent with the patterns and processes of nature.

Copies of Garden Revolution: How Our Landscapes Can Be a Source of Environmental Change, which Larry coauthored with Thomas Christopher, will be available for purchase and signing after the lecture.

This course is part of the Winter Lecture Series.
