Why is HOMEscape Design Solutions perfect for you right now? Attend this 8-session, hands-on workshop to learn how to create your personal dream “HOMEscape.” Master Gardeners will inspire you to complete your landscape project as you learn the tools of site planning.

This unique workshop – an enhancement to the Master Gardener program and also open to the public – promises to inspire, empower, and encourage participants to successfully plan and execute their dream landscape. Your team of Master Gardeners and participants will visit your garden to provide suggestions and ideas for YOUR dream landscape! Also available is a one-on-one consultation from the expert instructors and lifetime Master Gardeners.

Course work is presented by Veteran Master Gardeners and focuses on artistic design and includes aspects of permaculture (an innovative framework for creating sustainable ways of living), xeriscaping (a style of landscaping and gardening that reduces or eliminates the need for supplemental water from irrigation), Southwest native plants that thrive in our harsh environment, plus hardscape essentials, raised bed gardening, and much more. 

Sessions will be held in the Grace Lee Conference Room. Class is limited to 20 participants. There is a $30 fee for workshop materials, payable at the first class. For information or to register, please contact homescapeinfo2021@yahoo.com.
