This class will meet on Saturday, April 4 from 9-11:30am via Zoom, which is an interactive, online meeting software. To participate, you’ll need internet access and a computer. More details will be sent to you prior to the class meeting date.

In this interactive workshop, learn how to integrate native groundcovers amidst your perennial beds to reduce the time and energy spent towards editing out unwanted plants. Through mimicking natural landscapes in your home garden, you can cut back on the financial and time resources used to apply wood mulch and spend more time enjoying the garden you created. Participants will learn a hands-on plant layering technique that they can use for future planning of their home landscape.
