Workshops to help residents learn to lead sustainable lives
Backyard Conservation Workshops have returned this year with 23 workshops and five sales planned during the next three months to help Fairfield residents lead more sustainable lives.
Eighteen organizations have partnered to develop educational programming on a wide range of topics including organic gardening, permaculture, composting, pollinators and beekeeping, do-it-yourself solar power, backyard chickens, invasive plant species, storm water management, food preservation, historic preservation and restoration, seed saving and more.
The programming is sponsored by the Jefferson County Extension office and offered free thanks to local sponsors who have covered registration costs. Many of the sessions will be lead by local experts at various locations across the community. Workshops begin March 12 and run through May.
