Last Call for Workshop Tomorrow:
Ecological Site Preparation
and Long-Term Resilience

Grab your tickets now for the next workshop in our regenerative design series, Ecological Site Preparation and Long-Term Resilience, led by Brandon Greenstein, Organic Growers School's director of consulting services and sustainability coach, from 1 to 4 p.m. this Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Ideal for builders, architects, landscape architects, and developers, this workshop will examine how to approach a building site with care and consideration for long-term resilience. We will begin with site assessment, initial preparation and mobilization, and move onto the measures of keeping on-site and off-site impacts minimal. We will examine measures to mitigate storm water, protect trees and remediate a building site upon project completion.
