Course Detail: PER200 - Call of the Wild: The New Role in Home Landscaping

Our backyards have the potential to be important ecological hubs.

From improved soil quality and water filtration to providing resources for humans, pollinators, butterflies and birds, we can harness the growing power of plants in our own backyards. This session will provide a brief overview of many of the benefits of native plants and how we can incorporate them into beautiful urban gardens, while also creating healthy and functional ecosystems.



This course will be delivered online. Classes will be facilitated by a live instructor during the scheduled course times. Several days prior to the start of your course, you will receive an email with information on connecting to the sessions.
