Landscape For Life is a series of workshops that shows participants how to work with nature in their garden, no matter where they live, whether they garden on a city or suburban lot, a 20–acre farm, or the common area of their condominium. Conventional gardens often work against nature. They can damage the environment’s ability to clean air and water, reduce flooding, combat climate change, and provide all the other natural benefits that support life on earth, including us. The good news is that even one home garden can begin to repair the web of life. It’s possible to create a great–looking garden that’s healthier for you, your family, your pets, and the environment-and that saves you time and money.
Landscape For Life is based on the principles of the Sustainable Sites Initiative™ program (SITES™), the nation’s first rating system for sustainable landscapes. SITES™ is an interdisciplinary effort led by the American Society of Landscape Architects, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center at The University of Texas at Austin, and the United States Botanic Garden.
