Community Backyards Workshops 

Attend a live, in-person workshop taught by local vounteers and watershed professionals. The workshops are about an hour to an hour and a half long. They cover the same content as the online course, but they are more detailed and allow the chance to ask questions and have discussions with the presenters and other residents! Please register in advance to receive a voucher at the workshop, or just show up and receive a voucher after the workshop. Thank you to our presenters from Friends of Alum Creek & Tributaries (FACT)Friends of the Lower Olentangy Watershed (FLOW)Simply Living, and more.

 

Check back in April 2023 for more dates.
