Celebrate the first day of spring and World Water Day by learning how
to implement landscaping techniques that help keep our rivers, lakes,
and wetlands clean. Four great local landscaping professionals will
be leading the workshop – Sarah Middeleer of Holmes Fine Gardens in
Newtown, Cynthia Rabinowitz of The Hidden Garden and ConnSoil, LLC in
Bethlehem, and Kyle & Lisa Turoczi of Earthtones Native Plant Nursery

native plants, and more! Refreshments available in the morning but

field trip.
