Keep the Leaves Virtual Workshop with Michele Chalice
September 19, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
There’s a better, easy way, even if you’re not an avid gardener, to keep and use the leaves on your property to save money, to reduce waste, to increase the health of your soil, to support our pollinators, to improve the nutritional value of any vegetables you grow and to even reduce community flooding by helping to prevent the clogging of storm drains. Learn the benefits of leaving leaves in your gardens as well as three easy ways to turn leaves on your lawns into leaf compost or mulch.
Check out Michele’s fantastic resource before the workshop called, Leaf Gold.
