the new california garden
@ Marin art & garden center
This course is what all Californians have been yearning for: concepts that inspire us to move past the routine landscape and interact with our gardens, think environmentally and re-imagine the lawn. We seek to embrace our localities, and modern lifestyles! Our gardens should be places of pleasure, inspiration and life. This intensive, practical course will present comprehensive information on the many interacting systems necessary to create beautiful, efficient, ecologically friendly, and locally appropriate gardens.
This course will present basic yet comprehensive information on the many interacting systems necessary to create successful gardens including:
- Site analysis
- Weed, pest, and disease control
- Irrigation design
We will go over a variety of plant based, practical design styles that can serve as examples to students on how to get started putting together a concept for their own garden, as well as look at problem situations and solutions.
Instruction will focus on organic, ecologically sound practices appropriate to our dry summer climate.
We are excited to offer this course with wonderful Marin Art & Garden Center in their incredibly beautiful garden. Class will end with a casual reception including delicious small bites and local wine.
