Jennifer Claster, Claster Landscape Architecture and Planning
Basic Principles of Ecological Landscape Design
How can we design gardens to work in concert with ecological processes, rather than fighting against them? How can we use landscape design to improve the resiliency of our communities? In this talk, Jennifer will cover basic landscape design concepts integrated with ecological practices to enhance ecological health, resiliency, function, flow, and reduce maintenance needs and costs.

This event is one of the Land Trust’s Winter Gardening Workshops, a part of our Tom Settlemire Community Garden. The Workshops are a wonderful opportunity each winter to learn from master gardeners through practical lectures and hands-on training. Gardeners of all levels can improve their skills.
The workshops focus on organic gardening methods and provide information about topics such as choosing plant varieties, starting seedlings, permaculture, the use of native plants, soil enrichment and mulching, gardening in small spaces, and controlling common pests and disease.
Workshops are held on Sundays from January – March each year, from 2:00-3:30pm at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Brunswick.
Venue: St Paul's Episcopal Church
