Spring Class Offerings
The Organic Landscape

Tuesday March 11th 7:00-8:00pm

Vennehejm Meeting Room - Decorah, IA

Free and Open to the Public

 

Class Description

Organic techniques are becoming increasingly popular for food production but how can these same principles apply to our landscapes. The choices that we make while managing our landscapes have a huge impact on the health of our family and surrounding community as well as the health of local streams, rivers and wildlife. This class will discuss how the use of proper design, soil building and pest management practices allows us to create a beautiful landscape without the use of harmful fertilizers or pesticides. Accredited Organic Land Care Professional, Jeff Scott of Driftless Gardens, will share the most recent information on this exciting new topic.

 

This class is being offered by the Winneshiek County Master Gardeners.  Please contact us with any questions about the class.

Every garden is a reflection of the gardeners that tend it. We will discuss the most important things to consider when gardening with kids. A garden can be a wonderful place for kids to explore nature, learn about health and wellness and develop academic and leadership skills. The more thought that goes into creating these opportunities, the more successful a kid friendly garden will be. Whether you will be gardening with family, in an educational setting or want to bring out your own kid at heart, come join us for this exciting start to spring.
