Course Description

ONLINE: This three-session course explores the creation of home gardens that support wildlife, promote pollinators and adapt to local ecosystems. It focuses on creating "ecological gardens," which promote balance and coexistence within the local habitat. The course will explore the concept of eco-zones in gardening, and how the climate, soil and topography can shape plant choices. Students will be able to identify their local eco-zone, select region-appropriate plants and adopt sustainable practices. Attendees will also learn about the vital role of pollinators, discover plants that attract them and gain insights into maintaining a year-round blooming garden. The final lecture will emphasize designing a wildlife-friendly garden that uses native plants, provides water sources and shelter, and offers food for various species. Practical tips for maintaining a garden and participating in citizen science projects will be shared. | Lecture + Q&A, Facilitated discussion.
