Successfully managing and maintaining environmentally sound landscape practices is the focus of a half-day workshop May 30, 2014 at the Westchester County Center in White Plains, NY. “Maintaining Environmentally Sound Landscapes” is a stand-alone workshop but complements our December 2013 “Designing Environmentally Sound Landscapes” workshop.
Five distinguished professionals with practical experience in managing and maintaining non-traditional, environmentally sound landscape practices will lead participants through the management and maintenance processes needed to achieve results. They also will present case studies of successful projects and explain how you can certify your property as a sustainable landscape.
The cost is $20 per person ($30 after May 27), which includes a continental breakfast, late morning snacks, and any handouts. Parking at the County Center is $7. Pre-workshop registration is required and will only be accepted when accompanied by payment.
If you have any questions or would like additional information, please do not hesitate to contact Kay Eisenman, 914-995-4424 or [email protected], or Rob Doscher, 914-995 4423 or [email protected].
The workshop is co-sponsored by the Westchester County Soil and Water Conservation District and departments of Planning and Parks, Recreation and Conservation, The Native Plant Center at Westchester Community College, and Cornell University’s Cooperative Extension of Westchester County.
