Edible Bayscape Workshop
October 2 @ 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Create a beautiful yard, preserve local waterways and protect the Chesapeake Bay.
Join us for a FREE Edible Baywise garden workshop to learn about Bay-Wise landscaping with native plants at St Paul’s Lutheran in Kingsville.
Bayscapes replace lawn with native plants that support wildlife, reduce maintenance, and filter rain water from your yard, driveway, or other hard surfaces. Bayscapes are planted in areas that will intercept and filter rainwater before it runs off to a storm drain, local creeks and streams, or the Chesapeake Bay. Edible Bayscapes provide the added bonus of growing your own seasonal produce.
No gardening experience necessary. A maximum of 15 people will be allowed to participate in this event. We are allowing minors (ages 8 – 17) to attend our events as long as there is one parent/legal guardian per two children.
Location: St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 12022 Jerusalem Road, Kingsville, MD 21087
What to expect: Bring a personal water bottle. Participants are required to wear face masks during this event. The event will be held outdoors and adhere to our COVID-19 social distancing policy.
