Norway Spruce Up Your Backyard
Chicago’s Sustainable Backyards Program is in full swing for 2012 and wants to help you create a more environmentally-friendly landscape in your yard. An educational and incentive program that highlights the many ways Chicago residents can improve their backyards, the CSBP helps Chicagoans install rain barrels, compost bins, purchase native trees and plants, and provides workshops that cover the ins and outs of sustainable landscaping. Chicago residents can receive up to 50% off their local purchase of backyard items through rebates! The next Sustainable Backyard Workshop is next Tuesday June 12th from 6-8pm at the Chicago Center for Green Technology. Learn more on the City of Chicago website and register for the workshop here!
