October 25, 2018 5:30 pm to November 15, 2018 8:30 pm
Where: 

Education Center at Berkshire Botanical Garden

This course meets for 4 weeks on Thursdays, October 25 -  November 15, 5:30 - 8:30 pm

This course will help students better understand the principles and practices of ecological gardening with a focus on native plant communities.  Students will learn the native plant palette, resources needed to identify these communities and habitats and methods of introducing native plants into gardens.  Identifying and controlling invasive plant species in addition to restoring areas that have been impacted by invasives will also be highlighted. Gardeners will learn how to enhance garden spaces with native plants (although not exclusively) that create sustainable and low maintenance gardens.
