Minimizing Your Maintenance class

October 21, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Want to attract more birds, more pollinators, mitigate storm water, and boost biodiversity in your garden? Dreading taking care of all your fall pruning? Wait right there! Come learn in this 90 minute course about how doing less maintenance in your garden will create a bigger impact for your backyard ecosystem. From container gardens to a couple acres of land, we will explore how to manage your garden for stronger biodiversity. Old seed heads, dead grasses, decaying branches, and leaf litter all play a vital role in keeping your backyard system healthy and thriving. Learn to love your garden through all seasons with the knowledge that you are doing more with less work.

Capacity is limited, so reserve your spot today!
