Save Time and Money

Our landscapes often take a great amount of our time, energy, and money to maintain. This is because we put much of the maintenance burden on our shoulders rather than on the broad shoulders of Mother Nature.

Benefits of attending these events:

  • Connect with others who are trying to lower the maintenance burden of their yard
  • Gain design ideas that improve the usefulness of your landscape
  • Learn how to grow food in low-maintenance ways
