Naturescaping Basics

Sunday December 02, 1:00pm - 5:00pm

Join the Council and East Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District and learn to naturescape! Naturescaping is the practice of designing (or redesigning) your landscape so that it reduces water use and decreases stormwater runoff while saving you time, money and energy. This introductory workshop introduces the core concepts of naturescaping, and also explores:

  • pollution prevention through the reduction/elimination of chemical use
  • how native plants naturally resist pests & tolerate drought conditions while attracting native birds, butterflies and other beneficial pollinators to your garden
  • basic site planning principles, and many other great natural gardening & design tips
