Led by a landscape architect experienced in working with a range of site challenges and environmental restoration, this class will introduce participants to fundamental design principles, site assessment and planning. Gain a better understanding of what comes into play in creating and managing sustainable, aesthetically appealing landscapes. You'll come away empowered to be more creative, instinctive, decisive and purposeful in understanding good design and more adept at recognizing what's not. Includes two sessions online (asynchronous).
