Go Green Winnetka:Yards That Work – Sustainable Yard Tour  .

July 23 @ 10:00 am 2:00 pm

Go Green Winnetka is excited to announce its third Yards That Work Sustainable Yard Tour on Sunday, July 23 from 10 am – 2 pm. The Tour features five yards this year and is designed to inspire and encourage sustainable living in different ways. It highlights the beauty and practicality of landscape features and choices that work FOR homeowners, communities, and the environment—like native plants that are critical to birds and pollinators, fruit and vegetable gardens and trees that give new meaning to farm-to-table, rain barrels and bioswales that divert stormwater, home compost systems that return kitchen table scraps and yard waste back to the soil, and much more.

Our hosts will share their passion, experience, and wisdom—showcasing what works for them—and hopefully will give you ideas about what might work for you to make your own yard more sustainable. They include projects just getting underway, areas and gardens a few years further along, and a yard 20 years in the making,
