Green Matters: The New American Landscape, will focus on the next chapter of American horticulture and the emphasis on sustainability that will drive landscape design in the coming decades. Sustainability has entered the mainstream. We see it associated with our food, building materials, and even the Olympics, but what does it really mean and how does it apply to landscape design? Join Keynote speaker, Heather Venhaus as she examines the broad issue of site sustainability and discusses the potential of small-scale sites and residential landscapes to improve ecosystem function and benefit human health and well-being. Heather will explore trends in sustainable design and provide guidance for becoming a leader in the green building movement. Course # 212968; Fee: $89; registration required at www.ParkPASS.org.
