Natural Lawn Workshop

This workshop will focus on using less chemicals around the outside of home such as your yards, gardens. Topics of discussion will be alternatives to yard fertilizers, natural ways to improve your gardens yields. We will also look at problem areas on your property that can be converted into a wildflower garden, rain garden, or a buffer area. These ideas and more will be presented to attendees for their own use. Our staff can provide alternate suggestions on a case by case issue. Copies of the Power point will be available.

Soil Testing Workshop   

Workshop instructs residents on the benefits of testing your soil and how to take a correct soil sample. When you apply fertilizer as needed it reduces the chance for nutrient loading in waterways and can put more money in your pocket. Our soils are filled with a mass diversity of life and if we treat our soil right they can provide us with many benefits other than its looks. We will have soil testing packets to take with you as well as additional information on selecting fertilizers.

Rain Barrel Workshop

Covers basic information about rain barrels. We will go over the five main watersheds in Stark County and give the attendees a chance to see which watershed they are located in. The main portion of the workshop will be going over the construction, uses, safety, maintenance, and benefits of having a rain barrel. At the end of the presentation attendees will be able to purchase a rain barrel including a diverter kit and parts. Copies of the Power point will be available.

Homeowners Seasonal Prep Workshop

This workshop will help people get ready for the upcoming season. Each program will depend on the time of year and be gauged to the next season. For example, the current workshop is working to educate homeowners on how they can prepare their property for winter by aerating their lawns and removing rain barrels form their down spouts. During the workshop we will cover a multitude of different way that people can prepare the lawns and gardens as well as other areas for the upcoming season whether that be spring, summer, fall or winter.
