Landscape for Life

Meadow garden with orange and yellow blooming flowers

Every home landscape has the potential to be more beautiful, help clean air and water, reduce flooding, and combat climate change. Yet conventional gardening practices too often work against nature, damaging the environment’s ability to provide these natural benefits.

Join us for this five-part series about creating a sustainable home landscape. Learn how to attract beneficial insects and birds, eliminate water problems, build healthy soil, reduce maintenance in your garden, and save money.

This program will take place every Tuesday evening, 5:30pm to 7:30pm, from February 27 to March 26, 2024 at the UMaine Regional Learning Center (75 Clearwater Dr, Ste 104, Falmouth, ME 04105). The snow date is April 2, 2024. Registration is required and the program fee is offered on a sliding scale, $50-$100/person (for all five sessions).

  • February 27: Successful Practices of Soils in Sustainable Gardens
  • March 5: Successful Practices of Water in Sustainable Gardens
  • March 12: Successful Practices of Plants in Sustainable Gardens
