Naturescaping Your Yard with Karen Bussolini (VIRTUAL)

Thursday, August 117:00—8:00 PMVirtual ProgramNewburyport Public LibraryNewburyport Public Library, 94 State Street, Newburyport, MA, 01950

Naturescaping is landscaping with nature – attracting and sustaining wildlife, using native and well-adapted plants, using resources wisely, avoiding environmental pollution. But it also means landscaping like nature. Nobody plants, waters or fertilizes the forest or the prairie, yet they survive – beautifully – on their own.

Naturescaping – also called Ecological landscaping – creates self-sustaining (i.e. low-maintenance) landscapes that function like nature. Naturescape Your Yard is informed both by the work of notable ecologists and ecological designers and Karen's own understanding that everything comes from somewhere, everything goes somewhere and it’s all connected.

Join us for big-picture ecological thinking, nitty-gritty how-to tips and images of sustainable yards and gardens that serve the needs of the people who use them, look attractive and function as small ecosystems. 

This program will take place on Zoom. Register HERE or call 978-465-4428 x242.
