We offer a suite of workshops through our Blue Thumb program that promote actions that home gardeners can easily take to make their yards more resilient and help the environment. Participants learn about site planning, rain gardens, native planting, habitat for pollinators, turf alternatives, trees and shrubs and more. The workshops start during the spring; every year we add new material. We also provide information on resources to help participants follow up on taking action, such as the state’s Lawns to Legumes program providing cost-share grants for residents to create pollinator habitat. In 2019, we welcomed our 10,000th workshop participant!
