Sustainable gardening class


Gardening is much more than growing plump tomatoes or fragrant roses. Gardens are part of the chain of life, with environmental consequences that can be beneficial or detrimental, depending on the choices a gardener makes.

That is the central theme of Landscape for Life, a five-week course that 15 people will begin taking Tuesday through the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy.

More than 400 people stopped by the Community Room at the Bull Run Regional Library in Manassas last weekend to see an assortment of model trains chugging through miniature villages, over bridges and past man-made mountains and forests.

Members of the Prince William Model Railroad Club proudly showed off the display, which nearly filled the room.
