Ditch the grass and learn about alternative options for eco-friendly groundcovers that provide homeowners with more sustainable beauty and biodiversity while saving resources.

Attendees will receive rooting hormone to use in establishing a lawn or lawn alternative.

Preregistration with prepayment is required by Thursday, August 18. Limited spots available.
