Backyard Skills @ Center for Living Peace
Growing with the Seasons.
Your edible garden can produce continuous abundant and diverse yields of seasonal organic food. When you implement proper design and planning, your garden will require little maintenance and can fit into any busy schedule. You’ll save money while eating fresh, organic and nutritious food, and increase biodiversity by growing habitat and supporting beneficial insects. Plus, gardens help reduce runoff and local water pollution by allowing the soil to soak up rainwater instead of running off to the ocean with pollution and chemicals. Join us this April 4 at 1:00PM on the path to sustainability by making good use of your space and turn water guzzling lawns into productive edible gardens!
