Sustainability Intensive Workshop
Creating and maintaining healthy, beautiful landscapes that minimize fertilizer, water, pesticides and time is the aim of every forward-thinking contemporary gardener or designer.
Developed by NYBG's Horticulture Department and School of Professional Horticulture, this in-depth and interactive workshop provides a comprehensive, real-world overview of current best horticultural practices for our region.
Ten, half-day workshops over five days, taught by expert practitioners combine field lectures, classroom case studies, and Garden site tours for a firm foundation in ecological design and sustainable practices.
