From Lawns to Landscapes: Save Time, Money, and Have a Great Yard, with Ali Clift from the Cumberland County Soil & Water Conservation District

Tuesday, August 16 -- 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Are you enjoying your yard as much as you’d like too? Ali Clift from Cumberland County Soil & Water Conservation District will join us again for this second part of her series on land care practices for maintaining a vibrant yard year after year without relying on synthetic products that are harmful to our waterways. This class will provide you with ways to reduce your lawn and associated maintenance for pollinator gardens, edible landscapes, rain gardens, vegetative buffers, groundcovers, wildflower meadows, and other natural landscapes you can pick and choose from to make your yard work for you. Whether you maintain your lawn or hire a professional, round up your neighbors and join us! All are welcome! This program will take place in person at the library and will be streamed simultaneously on Zoom, for those wishing to attend virtually. If you plan on attending, please register for this program below so that we can send you a reminder on the day of the event, as well as an optional Zoom link to join us.

About Cumberland County Soil & Water Conservation District
 
The Cumberland County Soil & Water Conservation District is a recognized and respected leader in natural resource conservation.

Today, the District focuses on educational programs and technical services that address the region’s soil and water conservation needs, including stormwater, agriculture, soil health, watershed management, and invasive species.
