Civic Garden Center Calendar of Events, Classes and Tours July, August, September 2013

Dear Partners in Gardening and Environmental Education,

I am sending you the Civic Garden Center’s class line-up for the next two and half months in the hopes that you can share some or all of these listings with your constituents. We hope you will share this exciting calendar of educational opportunities with the people who look to you as a resource. We would be happy to share your events so please feel free to send them to me by email.

Please let me know if you require this information in a different format or if there is anything I can do to assist in your spreading the word about the CGC’s programs. We create events for each class on our facebook page: if you wish to share those.

City’s Green Roots Beginning to Flower – Green Umbrella Summit – May 3, 2013

Green Learning Station Flower Signage Idea Germinating in Cincinnati – Green City of the West

The eight poster show will be on exhibit at the Green Umbrella Summit May 3, 2013. Then it will move to another of the venues illustrated on the posters.

The Queen City and environs are gaining national attention for green and sustainable efforts. An idea from the Green Learning Station of the Civic Garden Center of Cincinnati will identify greater Cincinnati’s stock of green buildings.

Thanks to some recent green-sky thinking, area residents and visitors should be able to point to the major buildings exemplifying sustainable energy and environmental design that are part of Cincinnati’s green building movement. The area will be “blooming” when a proposal to “plant” exterior signs in front of these sites becomes a reality. The project (Cincinnati Green Building Signage Project) is just another way the Queen City (and the city that sings) is moving forward as the Green City of the West. Beyond attracting architectural tourists (believe me, these folks exist), the colorful, eye-catching signage project will go the distance in promoting healthy environments – good for the planet and its people.
