This is a basic introductory garden/landscape design course for the gardener who wants to keep the biodiversity on their property using native plant material and organic methods. As an Accredited Organic Land Care Professional, Paula would like to convey the importance of enhancing the land, not abusing it. This is a six week course, two hours a week that will involve the following methods of giving back to the earth what we take away.
Presented through the Goffstown Adult Education Program, beginning March 8th from 6-8 pm for six weeks.
What is sustainablity and why is it important for our ecosystems?
