A New Garden Adventure: Online Education from Mount Cuba Center

For anyone interested in native plants, Delaware’s Mount Cuba Center is a fabulous resource.  I’ve been wanting to take courses there, but distance and schedules have just not allowed it.  So I was happy to learn that Mount Cuba has launched a series of online courses designed to share their wonderful education resources with audiences everywhere.  Mount Cuba Center Connect, the online education portal, describes itself as a “virtual garden of eastern North American native plants.”A

My first online course, Moss Gardening, examines the variety of moss textures, describes  landscape uses for moss and explains how to establish a moss garden.  This course will serve as a perfect complement to my next large-scale garden project – restoring the woodland border on the north side of my yard.  I dive in to the material tonight.

Here’s to the start of a new adventure!
