Henrico Extension to offer class on sustainable landscaping

The Henrico County office of Virginia Cooperative Extension will offer a five-week class on how to create and maintain healthy, beautiful landscapes that minimize impacts on the environment.

The Landscape for Life class will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. each Tuesday from March 14 through April 11 in the demonstration kitchen at the Henrico Human Services Building, 8600 Dixon Powers Drive.

The cost to register is $75 per person or $100 for a two-person household. Fees are due by Monday, Feb. 27. Participants must be able to attend all five sessions as each lesson will build on material covered the previous week.

The class will provide tips for gardening at a variety of locations, including multiacre farms, city or suburban lots and common areas at a condominium complex. Participants will learn how to use native plants, soils and the climate to create sustainable gardens and landscapes that can help protect the environment and critical wildlife habitat.
