Participants with learn how to convert lawns to meadows. Lawns are, for the most part, high maintenance, wasteful, and bad for the environment.

Meadows can help with water harvesting and can play a significant role in biofiltration and bioswales.

Participants will also see a green road installation. Green roads and green parking lots are the future.

Participants will see how I create meadows and natural lawns. They will follow various meadows from before, during, and after planting. Along the way, we will discuss the challenges and pitfalls of meadow making and meadow maintenance.
