Landscape for Life™, a 10-hour landscape planning course based upon the principles of the Sustainable Sites Initiative™ gives landowners the tools they need for sustainable management of outdoor spaces. The course will be offered free of charge over three Saturdays (June 7, 14, 21) from 10:15 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Mission Branch Library. The class will be taught by Landscape for Life™ instructor Rachel Cywinski, a member of the sponsoring organization Mission Branch group of Friends of San Antonio Public Library, and is co-sponsored by San Antonio River Authority. The class enrollment fee (normally $50/person) is free for this session.
Landscape for Life™ includes basic information about soil, water, plants and sustainable use of materials, encouraging landowners to plan their own landscapes in a way that considers future generations and the environment. http://landscapeforlife.org/ Enrollment is limited. To register for the three-session class, contact Mission Branch Library at[masked]-2704. Mission Branch Library will also host a session for children of parents attending the Landscape for Life™ class. The children’s class will include hikes, crafts, educational films, and gardening activities, at the same time as the adult class. Both groups will have time to lunch together each day. Attendees who wish to bring their children can register them, free of charge, while registering themselves for the Landscape for Life™ class.
