Sneak Preview

March 4th will feature two intensive workshops:

Soil Workshop

Soil biodiversity is the variety organisms within the soil including bacteria, fungi, beetles, worms, nematodes, fungi, and other organisms. The maintenance of soil biodiversity is essential to both healthy plant communities and to the environment as the organisms interact and contribute to global carbon and nitrogen cycles.
Spend the day learning from soil experts as we examine soil in the managed landscape.

Meadow Workshop

A properly constructed meadow is aesthetically pleasing while providing valuable ecosystem services including erosion control and biodiversity. The biodiversity of a Meadow includes a varied ecosystem populated by many species from all levels of the food chain. “The more it swarms, crawls, flies the better it is.” Biodiverse meadows sustain a wide variety of pollinators including bird populations by supplying many forms of food. The ultimate success of a meadow requires proper site preparation, installation, and maintenance.
Join us for a day of meadow presentations to educate and inspire.

March 5th will feature three simultaneous presentation throughout the day

Select from a total of 12 conference sessions featuring both design and practice topics. Join us to learn  how to restore lost ecological connections, more effectively manage land, and create beautiful, highly functioning landscapes.
