Tuesday March 15, on ZOOM 7pm EDT – with Michael Ross, SITES AP, ASLA, assistant professor in the University of Tennessee Department of Plant Sciences’ Sustainable Landscape Design concentration and in the School of Landscape Architecture

We have learned that our insects and wildlife need our help as we plan our home landscapes, but how to do that can be confusing. What elements make a landscape sustainable? How do native plants impact a sustainable landscape? What if I want a formal landscape design – can that be sustainable also? We will investigate these questions and more to give you some options as spring approaches and you start planning your garden. Michael Ross from the UT School of Landscape Architect and Plant Sciences Sustainable Landscape Design will teach us and show us several options for incorporating sustainability into our own landscape.  We will be having our Annual Spring Plant Sale Online March 18-April 1st and want you to have some great information from a design professional on what things to consider.

This program will be recorded and the recording will be sent to everyone who register, and closed captioning is available. Please contact UT Arboretum Education Coordinator, Michelle Campanis, at [email protected] with any questions or registration issues.
