Are you interested in creating a more sustainable, wildlife-friendly landscape? Would you like to learn how you can reduce your carbon footprint and also meet the needs of birds and other native wildlife? Have you already begun the transition of your property to a sustainable landscape? If so, you may already be eligible to have your yard certified through our Go Green Galloway Sustainable Landscape Program.

Go Green Galloway will hold its first Sustainable Landscape Certification Workshop from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Jan. 18. The workshop will cover the criteria for certification through this program, including how to survey your yard to identify existing native plants and invasive species plants, reducing your lawn size, discussing sustainable landscapes with neighbors and friends, initiatives for wildlife stewardship and initiatives for stormwater management on your property. The first 15 residents to be certified will receive their plaque free.

The workshop is free, and pre-registration is required. Email Barbara Fiedler at for preview materials to help determine the extent of your certification process.
