Are you interested in pollinator and rain gardens but don’t know where to start? Tired of the constant upkeep of your lawn?
If you have an interest in beautifying your outdoor space and making it more environmentally friendly, join KNA’s Environmental Committee for a seminar with Jason Rathe of Field Outdoor Spaces, and learn about projects of all sizes to help transform your yard! The fun happens Wed, Aug 17 from 6:30-7:30pm.
We'll be outdoors in the Kenny Elementary pollinator garden if weather permits (southeast corner of the building). In case of rain, we'll move inside to the Kenny Recreation Center building (1328 W 58th St).
