Ever wondered how to cut landscaping costs, meet your lawn care needs, and be a bit more sustainable around your community? With a growing interest in conservation practices in communities around our country, the Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky Regional Storm Water Collaborative is hosting a series of webinars for homeowners’ associations (HOAs) to review and discuss green practices that can help make our communities sustainable and livable for our future generations.
The webinar series, which will run in November and December, is designed to demystify green practices and infrastructure for leaders of HOAs and subdivision residents, or for anyone interested in learning more about these practices. Expert panelists will present webinar attendees with information and resources needed to understand and make decisions regarding such topics as storm water management, composting, solar and geothermal energy, and sustainable landscaping.
The webinars are free to attend, but registration is limited. Anyone interested can sign up for one or all webinars by clicking, here . If you have questions, contact the Hamilton County Soil & Water Conservation District at 513-772-7645.
