Naturescaping Basics


Design your landscape to reduce water use, decrease stormwater runoff and save you time, money, and energy - all while providing a beautiful habitat for birds, wildlife, and you! Naturescaping Basics is the first in our series and introduces attendees to their connection with the watershed, native plants of the PNW, pollution prevention, and other core concepts of naturescaping.


Site Planning


An extension of Naturescaping Basics, this workshop gives participants experience with the steps involved in planning a landscape or project. You will learn how to map your property, assess your garden style and needs, do some garden dreaming, and work on a group design scenario. Note: Participants must have attended the Basic Workshop first.
