Ever considered the environmental impact of your yard? The choices you make in your yard are far more than aesthetic: they affect the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the health of your family and our ecosystem. This information-packed workshop will cover ecologically-sound lawn care, native plants, trees, and fruit and vegetable gardening. We’ll end with an informal seed swap (bring any labeled extras you’d like to give away) and time for you to talk to Carleton student farmers interested in helping you get started on your yard projects! Presented by the Northfield Environmental Quality Commission in cooperation with Just Food.
When: Saturday, April 25 from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Location: In the Just Food Event Space, 516 Water St. S.
Cost: No charge! Preregistration is encouraged at the store.
