Climate Friendly Yards: Library Workshop

Tuesday, April 23, 2019

Learn about landscaping to save energy and reduce greenhouse gases.

When it comes to climate change, is your yard part of the problem or part of the solution? Join a panel of local landscape and farming experts to learn about ways to make yards more climate-friendly.

Yard care that relies on gas-powered tools, fertilizers, pesticides, and sending waste to a landfill increases greenhouse gases. Organic landscaping removes carbon from the air and sinks it into the soil while also providing energy-saving shade in summer, managing storm water, growing flowers for beauty and to feed pollinators, and providing delicious, nutritious food. For additional benefits, home yards can also host chickens, bees, or small livestock.

This event is presented in partnership by Eugene Public Library and 350 Eugene.
