Free Sustainable Landscape Training Session is April 11
As noted in the last Sustainability News, Winchester received a grant to help homeowners, landscapers, and others learn how to maintain their properties more sustainably: saving water, reducing pesticides, improving wildlife and pollinator habitat, and reducing soil erosion. This year, with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council grant, Winchester, Arlington and Stoneham will create a Sustainable Landscape Handbook and hold training sessions on sustainable landscaping practices. There will be three sessions, one in each town (all three communities are invited to every session): Landscape Design in Stoneham, Construction in Winchester, and Maintenance in Arlington. If you can’t attend all three they will be recorded and available on this page later this year. All training sessions are free of charge. The first session on Landscape Design will be held Tuesday, April 11, from 5-7 p.m., Stoneham Town Hall Banquet Room, 35 Central St. For more information, click here.
