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.

There are exciting options on the market for keeping rain where it falls. Pervious pavements send water into a gravel bed and then the ground. Green roofs absorb rain and insulate buildings. Both types of infrastructure are visually captivating and long lasting. But will they work at your home, school or office? Learn from experts in the fields of green roofs, pervious paving and landscaping to help decide if these green infrastructure options will work on your property.
