The Nanticoke Watershed Alliance will be hosting a free, single-day workshop that explores steps that you can take in your backyard to save money, conserve water, improve the health of your local waterways, and enhance wildlife habitat. Lunch will be included.
Learn about rain gardens, rain barrels, pollinator-friendly gardening, lawn fertilization, converting lawns to meadows, and more. Up to 20 participants will receive 45-gallon EarthMinded Rain Barrels, soil test kits that can be submitted for professional analysis at the University of Delaware's Soil Testing Lab, and Backyard Conservation Packs that includes resources about native plants and the Nanticoke River.
Thanks to the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control and the Georgetown Public Library for sponsoring this workshop.
