Ecology-based methods used in design, site assessment, planting and management of a garden are the emphasis of this second foundational class, offered in an intensive day-long format. Regional gardening considerations, such as slopes, drought and water management, and what it means to garden in an era of rapid climate change will be discussed. **Principles of Ecological Gardening is a prerequisite for this course.
