From The Times:

A workshop for residents to help green their yards and protect Lake Michigan will be presented from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 11. Location has not yet been determined.

Save the Dunes and partners will hold a free workshop to help residents in Northwest Indiana’s Lake Michigan watershed to make simple changes on their property to protect Lake Michigan. Work days will be held late in the spring where participants get hands-on experience helping each other install practices. Each participant is expected to adopt at least two new “best practices” for water quality, such as phosphorus-free fertilizer, rain gardens, rain barrels, and many others. Participants will receive a free soil test, a rain garden manual, and a small stipend that must be put toward a best practice. Lunch will be provided. Read more.
