Sustainable Landscape 2-day Training

OSU Extension Service in Lane County

Wednesday, June 27, 2012 - Thursday, June 28, 2012 (All Day Event)

The 2-day Sustainable Landscape training provides practical information to create sustainable/green/ecological landscapes. Participants will learn to utilize landscape practices that can be applied to their own yards, and will benefit by improving their soil biology and reducing erosion. They will save money by using fewer pesticides and less fertilizer and improving the quality and quantity of groundwater. Some outcomes to expect include lowering power, water and waste bills due to more efficient use of resources, and reducing the flow of organic matter into the landfill.Upon completion of the course, participants will complete a self-evaluation of their yards followed by an on-site evaluation within a few months to see what improvements have been implemented. With an evaluation score of over 40 points the participants will earn a placard to display in their yard showing that their yard has been certified by OSU Extension Service as a Sustainable Landscape. OSU Extension Service in Lane County has received a grant from EWEB to promote this program.
