Ecological Plant Knowledge for Organic Gardeners

Over three seasons you will learn to identify approximately 300 plants. For each one you will explore its ecosystem of origin, and under which conditions it thrives best, or just marginally survives, how it adapts to our environment, and how you can provide it with optimal care. Learn about non-ornamental uses, such as food, medicine, fiber, etc. View plants in garden settings, focusing on ecologically sound and successful combinations. No prior knowledge required.
