This Fall, learn how to transform your backyard (of any size!) into a living, breathing healthy habitat for you, your family, and your pets. Did you know that you can take action against climate change just by changing your mowing habits?
Learn from the Sustainable Land Care Working Group who have many combined years of practical experience in habitat restoration, pollinator/rain gardens, native plant garden design, organic lawn care, composting, invasive species identification, and meadows as Master Gardeners. Sustainable Land Care Working Group is part of the new Sustainable West Hartford Commission.
