Yardscaping: From Lawns to Landscape

Thomas Memorial Library will host Cumberland County Soil & Water Conservation District for a workshop on "Yardscaping: From Lawns to Landscapes" on Thursday, March 23, 2024 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.  

Learn how to create a wildlife habitat, grow food for your family, and protect your local waterways while improving the appearance and functionality of your yard.  This workshop will provide you with ways to reduce your lawn and associated maintenance by swapping it for pollinator gardens, edible landscapes, rain gardens, vegetative buffers, ground covers, wildflower meadows, and other natural landscapes you can pick and choose from to make your yard work for you.

Bring a layout of your yard (copy of tax map, drawings, satellite image, pictures) to start designing your landscaping changes at the end of the workshop with free technical assistance from the instructor.  Additional free site visits may be available to workshop participants.  Registration is free and through the Thomas Memorial Library.  Click here to REGISTER.
