Event Description

Yes, a garden can be stunning and low maintenance, a haven for wildlife in urban environments, a self-sustaining ecosystem - all at the same time.

Landscape health starts with intelligent design. In this course you will explore the intricate relationships within ecosystems, and how you can work with them to create vibrantly beautiful and healthy gardens. Be prepared for an eye-opening experience that will challenge some commonly held beliefs, and will leave you empowered with a new understanding of how a garden works.

This course would be of interest to:

  • Those considering a career in landscape design
  • Landscapers wishing to offer more professional design services
  • Homeowners wishing to design their gardens in a professional manner.

Landscape professionals earn generous pre-approved Continuing Education Credits to maintain industry certifications (ISA, CNLA, BCSLA, SOUL).

This program partially satisfies the requirements of the Diploma in Organic Land Care.

PRE-REQUISITES: Organic Master Gardener Course
