About the Class:
Come discover just how beautiful, sustainable, and low-maintenance gardening can be with native plants. Native plants are adapted to the local climate and soil conditions where they naturally occur… which means they can often solve many landscape woes. Gardening with native plants typically means less watering, less need for pesticides and fertilizers, and less chance of introduction and spread of invasive species. Plus these important plant species provide nectar, pollen, and seeds for native butterflies, insects, birds, and other animals native to your area.
This class will provide you with an appreciation for giving your yard a Northwest aesthetic—complete with design tips and species recommendations—in perfect time to create a plant list before the fall plant sales!
Class is free, but you must register to attend.
