Did you know that in our region of the eastern U.S. mowed lawns represent the largest single crop, exceeding the total individual acreage devoted to row crops, pasture, hay/alfalfa or freshwater wetlands? That means that individual homeowners can have a significant impact on the environment just by adjusting our landscaping habits to be more sustainable. Come out to one of the four community workshops PEC is hosting this summer and learn how!
The Piedmont Environmental Council is hosting a series of sustainable landscaping workshop in May for residents of Loudoun. We will be traveling to communities around the County with experts in landscaping, gardening, lawn care, backyard habitat creation, and more. Participants will be given the information they need to start a variety of sustainable landscaping practices, and will learn more about the connections between their land and the surrounding environment.
