ONSITE | Three Sessions: Wednesdays, May 8, 15 & 22, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Landscape Architect Jennifer Verprauskus teaches this in-person version of our fundamentals class that introduces participants to design principles, site assessment and planning, among other topics. Participants will gain a better understanding of what comes into play in creating and managing ecologically sustainable and aesthetically appealing landscapes. Participants will have the opportunity to apply learning to create a master plan for their landscape or focus on one area of their landscape then share plans in design charrettes. When time and weather allow, the class will explore the Arboretum for examples of plants and design elements. Come away empowered to be more creative, instinctive, decisive and purposeful in understanding good sustainable design and more adept at recognizing what’s not.
