NCAP is offering a free workshop on organic urban land care on Wednesday, September 5 in Eugene, OR.

Awbrey Park Eugene

Organic land care isn't just for farming. Implementing organic practices and avoiding pesticides in urban areas helps create healthier, more vibrant, and biologically diverse communities. That's why we're inviting you to a free workshop on organic methods for urban land care.

This event will feature local pros who specialize in sustainable design and management:

Lane Community College (LCC) Grounds Manager, Julia Schnabel will discuss LCC's program for managing the campus grounds, highlighting the practical strategies they've used to transition almost completely away from using pesticides. 

From the Eugene Parks and Open Space DepartmentChris Girard will talk about the city's Pesticide-Free Park Program and methods they use to avoid pesticides in these areas.

Holde Fink of Native and Urban Gardens will outline the ecological principles behind his comprehensive landscaping service, and discuss how plants and insects can be read as indicators for certain soil conditions and overall landscape health. Holde is an organic land care provider accredited through Oregon Tilth.

You'll also learn about other local resources for organic land care and have a chance to take home some really cool raffle items! We hope to see you there.
