Transform the Landscape of your Home and Neighborhood—Free Workshops December 7

Have you ever wondered how to move away from a thirsty planted landscape to a more climate appropriate one? How you could get more trees, greenery and shade in your neighborhood without needing a huge amount of additional water? How you could do your part to prevent water pollution and save water by collecting rain?

Well, wonder no more. TreePeople is offering its next round of FREE, quarterly Community Sustainability Workshops for people ready to take on the role of making their homes, neighborhoods and communities more sustainable. Three full morning workshops are taking place for the general public on Saturday, December 7, each starting at 9AM—Citizen Forestry: Tree Planting, Rainwater Harvesting, and Native Plants and Turf Removal.

All training events are held at TreePeople’s Center for Community Forestry, at the intersection of Coldwater Canyon and Mulholland Drive. No experience or equipment required, just the desire to make a difference where you live, work or play!

Because these are free, and seating is limited, it’s important to reserve your spot as soon as possible.
