Hi all, I work for VPA partner Watershed Management Group, and I'd like to let you know about an upcoming project series we're holding to help people learn about using rainwater harvesting, greywater, native plants, and more to build healthy urban soils. If you're interested in coming, please make sure to pre-register online. The course fee allows you to bring a friend or other members of your household. Feel free to message me with any questions. Thanks and happy new year!
Time/Date: January 19 – February 23, Tuesday evenings from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. Location: 24 Carrots Natural Café and Urban Juicery, 1701 E Guadalupe Rd, Tempe
Learn how to create a sustainable backyard oasis at WMG’s six-part Hydrate Tempe project series. Each presentation includes a mini-project to create an action plan for your home. Hydrate with fresh smoothies and juices, and soak in knowledge about greywater, composting, and building a rain garden. Join us for your favorite topics or attend the full series to build a comprehensive site plan.
$20 registration fee per household includes project folder and activities, a rain gauge at the first session you attend, and a fresh fruit smoothie from 24 Carrots. Sign up for the first session on January 19 to be entered in a raffle to win a free 55-gallon rain barrel! Learn more and sign up online at watershedmg.org/hydrate.
