Designing Native and Ecological Plant Communities (5 hour workshop)

Functional and ecological plantings, such as rain gardens and meadows, are gaining in popularity but also face severe challenges. It is time for a new approach — a plant community-based method which has evolved in the world of ecological science. Join Claudia for this day long workshop as she translates ecological principles of wild plant communities into planting design tools that will help you create better planting. This interactive workshop will introduce you to the science behind stable and lasting plant combinations. You will learn the skill of creating plant communities in four hands-on design exercises and practice this technique in a hypothetical planting project at the end of the workshop.
