Intro to Sustainability @ Civic Garden Center
Jan 30 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

The term “sustainability” is thrown around a lot these days. Used in a broad context, the concept sounds abstract and daunting to tackle. However, living a sustainable lifestyle doesn’t have to be complicated. In this session, we will explore how one person can make choices that are good for the health of the planet and people. Sustainable living is unique to each individual and can be simple, money-saving, and possible for everyone.

Spring Ephemerals @ Civic Garden Center
Feb 13 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Springtime in the forests of Southwest Ohio greets us with brief and sudden flashes of flowers. These flowers are collectively known as “spring ephemerals” because of their short bloom time. Taking advantage of early spring light, before being shaded by the leafing out of the deciduous canopy, these small flowers carpet the forest floor with hues of white, yellow and blue. Additionally, many of these spring ephemerals provide an important early season food source for insects limbering up from a cold winter. This class will introduce the participant to some of these early bloomers and provide information on their life histories.
