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.

Master Gardeners pulling together


When the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors abandoned the county Master Gardeners program last year, its volunteers might have packed up their rakes and hoes and gone home.

Edye Clark, the group’s president, said that a few members did leave the organization but that most pulled together and worked harder to carry out the group’s mission to educate the public about organic gardening.
