CSU Extension is excited to be partnering with the U.S. Botanic Gardens on Landscape for Life. Thank you for your patience as we work to update program materials and formatting. New learning opportunities will be available in late 2023!
While conventional gardens can work against nature, sustainable gardens are supportive of natural ecosystems and conserve resources. They enhance the environment’s ability to clean air and water, reduce flooding, combat climate change and provide all the other natural benefits that support life on earth.
Even one home garden can contribute to a more diverse, resilient local ecosystem.
