EUGENE, Ore. -- The OSU Extension Service is offering a sustainable landscape seminar June 20 and June 21 at their office on Jefferson Street in Eugene.

The seminar will discuss where plants should go and how to improve water efficiency, enrich soil quality through mulching and composting, and reduce the use of pesticides and fertilizers.

These efforts should result in lower power, water and waste bills.

“All of these things are small points that when you take a little bit of each, you become more and more sustainable,” said Gwendolyn Scott, Volunteer Coordinator for the Sustainable Landscape Program. “You hold more and more water in your property, on your property, wherever you are, and that’s what it’s about.”

The seminar is $25 and preregistration is required.
