2018 Grow Green Training: Putting Down Roots

Thursday, November 8, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Conventional landscapes often work against nature by utilizing landscape chemicals. It's possible to create a great–looking landscape that's healthier for you, your family, your pets and the environment and can save you time and money without using toxic pesticides or quick-release fertilizer. Making informed plant choices and understanding how trees grow is a great place to begin!

Join us to get to know some tough landscape plants and perhaps gain a new appreciation for trees!


7:00 p.m. – 7:45 p.m.

Denise Delaney, City of Austin Watershed Protection Department

7:45 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
