[ARCHIVED] Educational Workshop on Lawn Care and Rain Barrels

A photo of green grass.

You may not think that your lawn has much of an impact on the world beyond your block, but it does. We have been trained over generations to appreciate lawns and open spaces that are uniform with grass freshly cut short and free of ruffage.

Let's rethink our vision of a perfect lawn and learn how to incorporate stormwater into our landscaping to improve water quality, help our neighbors downstream, and create beautiful spaces that connect us with our natural heritage.

Join us at Ivory Bill Brewing on Saturday, February 18 for an educational workshop on lawn care and rain barrels. The entire family is welcome to join. 

Be one of the first 25 households in Siloam Springs to register and take a free, pre-built rain barrel home. One per household, please bring the mailed invitation or a Siloam Springs utility bill.

If you are not from Siloam Springs, you are still welcome to attend.
