Resilient Landscapes in Built Environments is a new intensive course with Advanced Studies at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. Offered in two sections in early spring, students can choose to take both sections in one year or take one section per year (either section may be taken first). Each section consists of four weekly classes.
Resilient landscape practices are connected to the evolving environment. Incorporating low-maintenance design, resilient landscapes sustain and regenerate under stressful environmental conditions, rather than falling victim to stressors. They are aesthetic powerhouse systems providing ecological services; as such, they give the landscape professional the opportunity to evolve their business, adapting to the changing environment. This course is designed for professional landscape practitioners or those enrolled in a landscape degree who are interested in furthering their professional development and broadening their current practices, whether they’re an experienced Landscape Architect, Landscape Designer, Landscape or Garden Contractor, or a Landcare Consultant. Heather McCargo from Wild Seed Project will be teaching the class Native Herbaceous Plants on Wednesday, April 8th.
