lessons in natural garden design
Oh yes, the experts have ups and downs, too. Join Benjamin in a close look at several landscape projects -- the difficulties and successes, the surprises and the necessary pivots. We'll explore a variety of private and public gardens: from seeding to plugs, from sun to shade, from a few hundred square feet to several acres. This class is an honest and unflinching look at natural garden design from the perspective of the designer. There's lots to learn and commiserate with.

"I liked how he connected what we do in our gardens to the overall health of our ecosystem. He provided facts I hadn't heard before and I walked away from the presentation inspired to make changes."
"Wonderful! Combination of knowledge, wit, and alacrity of presentation.... So interested in his topic that he made me interested!"
"He did an outstanding job bridging practical gardening with the philosophy behind why we need native plants in our landscapes. He had great photos, statistics, and personal stories."
