Jessi Bloom, owner of Mill Creek's N.W. Bloom EcoLogical Landscapes, taught a class entitled, Sustainable Landscape Design on Wednesday evening at the Mill Creek City Hall. Bloom is a Certified Professional Horticulturalist and ISA Certified Arborist.
The City of Mill Creek hosted the free sustainable gardening class as part of the Mill Creek Natural Yard Care Series sponsored by the Snohomish Conservation District.
About fifteen Mill Creek residents learned how to work with factors in their yards such as light, soil, and water to design and plant healthy, nourished landscapes. Bloom discussed low-maintenance gardens, planting edibles, and strategies for growing a self-sufficient garden.
