Sustainable Landscaping

1 pm, February 21, 2017

at the Garden Club, 1645 High Street



What is sustainability anyway?  The United Nations in 1987 noted that "sustainable development meets the needs of the present without compromising the well-being of future generations."


OSU is more specific when they discuss sustainable landscapes.  Sustainable landscapes protect, balance and integrate multiple interests: soil, water, plants,wildlife and humans.  Deciding on that balance is a very personal decision.


Gwendolyn Scott created and oversees the sustainability class for the OSU master gardeners.  She will discuss the issues in this sticky topic.
