Creating a Smart Yard: Composting, Pollution Prevention, and Planting Native

February 10 @ 12:00 pm


Spring is right around the corner and now is the perfect time to start planning your garden and prepping your yard! Sustainably of course. Planting a garden and planting trees in your backyard helps the planet. Growing your own food cuts down on air and water pollution, and fossil fuels. But wait, there’s more! Planting native trees and native species in your yard can help support local wildlife and all of these efforts help protect Tennessee’s water resources. Join us, as we hear from local experts on all the ways you can make your backyard the smartest on your street.

Featuring Special Guests:

Julie Berbiglia
Education Specialist, Metro Water Services

Jennifer Smith
City Horticulturist, Metro Office of Beautification
