Getting It Right from the Start: Creating Great Landscapes: 2017 Gardening Lecture Series at CCE-Rockland Education Center & Office

Event description: With all the best of intentions, anyone trying to plant trees or create a landscape in Rockland needs to have a firm understanding of environmental resources that allow trees to grow to their envisioned ultimate size. Most of the places we live in, whether rural, suburban or urban have been significantly impacted by human activities, whether it is by building a house, creating roads, or laying pavement for a sidewalk or parking lot. These alterations are unquestionably more numerous in an inner-city area than a rural village, yet they are fundamentally the same impact.

Discuss an approach which includes best plant selection and soil preparation practices that will guide you in creating terrific landscapes.

Speaker: Dr. Nina Bassuk Dr. Bassuk is a professor and program leader of the Urban Horticulture Institute at Cornell University. She also sits on the board of the New York State Urban Forestry Council. This program is presented by the Master Gardner Volunteers of Rockland County and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Rockland County.
