Green Landscaping Workshop Saturday morning May 16 from 9 am - noon

Save the Bay (at the new headquarters on the water in Providence) is holding their second annual Green Landscaping Workshop on Saturday May 16 from 9 - noon. Please join them for a morning of gardening tips and excellent buys on everything to get your garden off to a good green start. There will be local experts speaking on a range of topics from Sustainable Lawn Care to Container Gardening to Native Plants and how to use them. The use of excessive lawn and garden fertilizers will be discussed noting their threat to harbor water quality and the shellfishing industry. Last year experts explained simple ways to compost. There will be a garden project table for kids. Rain barrels will also be on sale as well as yard care products and native plants. To reserve a rain barrel in advance, visit (Last year there were plenty available that were not reserved.) The rain barrels are recycled olive barrels from Italy and come in several colors. If you have questions, ideas or want to exhibit eco-friendly wares or services contact Marci Cole Ekberg at Save the Bay at 401 272 3540 x 113 or email her at
