Truly successful gardens provide beauty, require little chemical
input and give back to nature. By emphasizing Mid-Atlantic native plants
and understanding their requirements, the homeowner can have it all!
The USBG, in partnership with the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower
Center, has developed Landscape for Life (www.landscapeforlife.org), a
program for home owners on sustainable gardening and based on the
principles behind the Sustainable Sites Initiative. This Landscape for
Life series serves to highlight how home gardeners can incorporate
sustainability into their personal landscapes. These brown bag lectures
can be done individually or as a series.
