Workshop I: Why Green Your Faith Community’s Landscape?

On Sunday, March 26, 2023, Sacred Grounds Toledo will offer a free workshop for faith communities aspiring to beautify their neighborhoods and to care for creation by greening their grounds and increasing their environmental stewardship. The workshop will highlight the common call to care for creation that all faith traditions share and will encourage the use of native plants to create habitat for birds and butterflies, welcome pollinators, reduce water pollution from runoff, lessen the impacts from climate change, and provide opportunities for adults and youth to spend time outdoors, increasing health and wellness. This will be a great opportunity for interested faith communities and gardeners to learn more learn about the National Wildlife Federation’s Sacred Grounds certification and for already participating faith communities to educate more of their members about the value of native plants in the landscape. 
See www.nwf.org/sacredgrounds and www.sacredgroundstoledo.org for details. 
The workshop will be offered on March 26th at Salem Lutheran Church, 1127 North Huron Street, Toledo, with registration opening at 1:00 p.m. followed by the workshop from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.. Light refreshments will be served.
