Ecological Garden Design

Ecologically focused design supports natural processes within and beyond the garden and is especially needed in suburban residential communities. Using Mt. Cuba Center's gardens as inspiration, acquire the skills necessary to create beautiful and functional native plantings. Through lectures, garden walks, guided discussions, and practical studio sessions, Travis Beck, Director of Horticulture at Mt. Cuba Center and author of Principles of Ecological Landscape Design, leads you through the design process and demonstrates methods of turning a creative concept into a sustainable and maintainable garden. The workshop will center around a residential-scale design project on Mt. Cuba's property. Learn new ways of looking at residential landscapes through nature's lens. Lunch is included in the cost of the workshop. This course is ideally suited to landscape designers and people working in the garden industry. Please review the Materials List prior to class. This is a two-session class.
