Climate Wise Gardening: An Earthkeeping Fair
April 27 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
We’re excited and honored to be participating and sponsoring the upcoming Climate Wise Gardening, An Earth Keeping Fair event on April 27th.
FREE! Over 30 demonstrations, exhibits, talks, and films on these and related topics:
– Pollinator and bird-friendly perennials and shrubs
– How to give up the lawnmower with “no-mow” grasses
– Intensive planting with increased diversity
– The magic of soil: turning dirt into rich, healthy soil
– Water solutions when there’s too much or too little
– Exchanging the rototiller for “no-till” methods
– Soil pH testing – bring a sample from your garden
– Free tree and shrub seedlings to take home
Everyone with a garden or yard can be “climate wise” by adopting practices that protect the earth and support wildlife. Hands-on activities and displays will show how the ecosystem works and how soil, microorganisms, and plants capture carbon. Together, we can contribute to bringing carbon and water cycles back into balance.
