Naturescaping Basics

Naturescaping is the practice of designing your landscape so that it reduces water use and decreases stormwater runoff while saving you time, money and energy. This introductory workshop introduces the core concepts of naturescaping, and also explores:

  • pollution prevention through the reduction/elimination of chemical use
  • how native plants naturally resist pests & tolerate drought conditions while attracting native birds, butterflies and other beneficial pollinators to your garden
  • basic site planning principals, and many other great natural gardening & design tips

Class will visit a nearby naturescaped project to see design principles in action. You’ll receive a comprehensive workbook and even a free native plant to help you get started.

This FREE workshop is presented by East Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District as part of their Naturescaping series.

Amy speaking at a meeting of the Multnomah Garden Club   Amy will be your presenter for this 4 hour workshop.
