June 18 – Sustainable Landscaping Tour

June 18 – Sustainable Landscaping Tour

June 18, 2022 – 10am to 5pm

We’re excited several neighbors have volunteered to show off the sustainable practices in their yards! We’re hoping this tour will help to acknowledge those who are already making sustainable choices, while also encouraging neighbors to give something new a try.

If you’d like to see some local examples of pollinator gardens, rain gardens, rain barrels, lawn-reduction, and much more, please consider registering for the self guided tour that will take place Saturday June 18th. You’ll receive the tour guide booklet with descriptions of each destination, and a list of local resources that can help you implement some of the sustainable practices on display.
