Plants for Living Landscapes

Attend Plants for Living Landscapes to learn which plants you should add to your landscape to increase its beauty and ecological function, while also reducing maintenance needs such as watering and pest control.

Plants for Living Landscapes is composed of two classes. Attendance of both classes is recommended but not required. For each class, two identical sessions have been scheduled. Choose the session that best fits your schedule:

All sessions will be held at the Chatham Agriculture and Conference Center, located at 1192 US-64 W Business, Pittsboro. Find us on Google Maps.

To Register: 
These classes are free but registration is required by March 31, 2017. Registration has now closed.


Living landscapes enhance your home and community by supporting a wide range of species that are needed to sustain healthy ecosystems. The plants you choose to include in your landscape determine whether pollinators, beneficial insects, birds, and other critters can survive in your yard, as well as how much care and resources are needed to keep those plants healthy.

These classes will focus on plants native to our region that are available from nurseries and garden centers. Class 1 will explore perennials and groundcovers for piedmont landscapes, while Class 2 will focus on trees and shrubs.
