Sustainable Living Institute

Empower yourself to become an environmental steward

June 12, 2021

9 a.m. - 12 p.m.

THINK ECOLOGICALLY. Sustainable living is the practice of reducing your demand for natural resources by making sure that you replace what you use to the best of your ability. Sometimes that can mean not choosing to consume a product that is made using practices that don’t promote sustainability, and sometimes it means changing how you do things so that you start becoming more of an active part of the cycle of life. Our courses are designed for adults and older children.

Increase your self-reliance by building good, nutrient-rich soil through backyard composting. Collecting your yard material and kitchen scraps at home provides the opportunity to build soil for use on plants, vegetables, and flowers indoors and out.


Trees For Tomorrow will provide instruction on setting up and using your high quality backyard composter and how to reduce waste, build soil, and increase self-reliance.
