CHICAGO SUSTAINABLE BACKYARDS PROGRAM
Saturday, March 15, 2014 from 2:30 PM to 4:30 PM (CDT)
Learn how to make your back, front or side yard more sustainable! This workshop will give you the knowledge you need to get started on making your yard a more sustainable and beautiful place using elements such as native plants, trees, compost, rain barrels, and rain gardens. We will cover the "whats", "whys", and "how-tos" of each of these elements, as well as give you some background on Chicago environmental and water issues.
