Part two of our Natural Garden Design series will review site assessment, natural garden design, soil, garden elements, planting, and care/maintenance. This 5-week series will dig deeper, covering areas from the ground up and beyond, including the historical and agricultural customs of the food we eat. Students will gain a deeper understanding of garden diagnostics to ensure the continued success of the garden.

Natural Garden Design 1.0 is NOT a pre-requisite for this series. This series is approved for PDE credit for CCSD teachers! A limited number of scholarship opportunities are available for CCSD teachers. Please call 702-822-7745 for details.

Classes will meet Sept. 15, 22, 29; Oct. 6 & 13 at different locations around the Springs Preserve. Topics are as follows:

Herbs: Creating Synergy in the Garden
Learn the difference between traditional gardens and low-maintenance ecological gardening. Herbs are used for the health and well-being of the garden itself as well as the general health of people.

Ethnobotany: Plants and People
Explore the ways plants and people have evolved through the ages. Learn how to integrate native plants into your garden.

Planting in a Timely Manner
For every plant there is a season. Learn when and how to plant your garden for optimal success. We will create a planting schedule that is easy to follow.

Seeds and Propagation Techniques
There's more than one way to increase your garden. Learn the principles and techniques of propagation through hands-on experience. We'll also cover the basics of seed saving from collecting and harvesting to storage and how to create a seed library.

What’s Wrong with This?
This class will cover plant diagnostics: what to look for, common ailments and causes, ways to avoid problems, and natural pest control.
