Landscape for Life
5 Thursdays, January 17, 24, 31, February 7, 21, 6 - 8:30 pm
Landscape for Life™ is a five-week curriculum based on the principles of the Sustainable Sites Initiative™, and is directed at serious gardeners and smaller scale residential designers. Learn to work with nature to provide clean air and water, fertile soils and other essential aspects of our daily lives, by selecting and using materials and strategies that support natural processes. The five sections of this course use a combination of instructor-led presentations, class discussions, exercises and field trips to investigate each topic. The Sustainable Sites Initiative™ (SITES™) is an interdisciplinary effort by the American Society of Landscape Architects, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center at The University of Texas at Austin and the United States Botanic Garden to create voluntary national guidelines and performance benchmarks for sustainable land design, construction and maintenance practices. Major funding for the Sustainable Sites Initiative is provided by the Meadows Foundation and Landscape Structures.
