Hi all, I work for VPA partner Watershed Management Group, and I'd like to let you know about an upcoming project series we're holding to help people learn about rainwater harvesting, greywater, native plants, composting, and more. If you're interested in coming, please make sure to pre-register online. The course fee allows you to bring a friend or other members of your household. Feel free to message me with any questions. Thanks and happy new year!
