What is Beauty on a Budget?

The Calgary Horticultural Society, in partnership with The City of Calgary, is offering a free introductory Yard Smart workshop providing the basic steps that will help you achieve a beautiful yard that's easy on the wallet and the environment too!

Participants will receive tools, resources and knowledge to help them implement long term, sustainable yard practices. They will also receive a 2015 Calgary Horticultural Society membership, linking them to one of Canada's largest gardening networks, along with our great garden centre discounts, and a coupon for a 50% discount on a rain barrel available from Green Calgary.

Registration for this workshop is limited to 12 households residing in the communities listed below and two participants from each household can attend if they wish. The selected communities have direct ties to the watershed.

The communities and workshop information is listed below. As we are trying to build networks of neighbours working together to preserve Calgary's water, we require that you attend the session in your community.

Be yard smart this season our rivers depend on you.

This is a partnership with the City of Calgary Water Services
