Every home landscape has the potential to clean air and water, reduce flooding, cool your community, combat climate change and alleviate the pressures being placed on Earth’s ecosystems. Yet conventional gardening practices too often work against nature, damaging the environment’s ability to provide these natural benefits that support the health and well-being of you, your family, and your community. The 5-part Landscape For Life program, developed by the U.S. Botanical Garden and the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center, shows you how to work with nature in your garden, no matter where you live, whether you garden on a city or suburban lot, a 20–acre farm, or the common area of your condominium. It's possible to create a great–looking sustainable landscape that's healthier for you, your family, your pets, and the environment --- and that saves you time and money!  Pre-registration is required. Participants who complete all course activities will receive a Certificate of Completion.
