Sustainable Landscaping Series at Brightwater Center

When it comes to your yard, act naturally! King County is partnering with the Snohomish Conservation District to offer a series of four classes this winter all about creating a healthy, manageable landscape.  These classes will be geared towards folks who are new to the concepts of sustainable landscaping practices.  Classes are free to attend, and there will be giveaways as well!  Join us for one or all of the classes at Brightwater Center.

February 3 (10a.m.-12p.m.) – The Foundation of Your Yard:  The dirt on soil, compost, and mulch

Healthy soil is the foundation of a successful landscape!  Join a soil scientist for a hands-on demonstration to learn the components of soil and how to make it work better for your landscape.  Have your soil tested prior to the class, or bring a soil sample with you to have it sent for analysis. If you bring test results, we will help you understand what they are saying about your soil. For information on soil testing visit:

All participants that attend this class will receive discount coupons for the Snohomish Conservation District plant sale, and be able to scoop compost to take home!
