Interested in having our Lawn Water Conservation Educator attend your next event?
If you are in the Twin Cities metropolitan area, our Lawn Water Conservation Educator is available with our educational materials for gatherings such as farmers' markets, home expos, fairs, and other events. You can choose to have the trailer set up, or if your space doesn’t allow that, we also have a table set up for indoor or outdoor events. The educator is also available for indoor events (without the trailer) or for speaking engagements. This service is offered free of charge and is sponsored by the Metropolitan Council.
We will have all the materials needed to educate residents on lawn care best management practices. These practices range from choosing a proper turfgrass species for your lawn, installing a WaterSense-labeled smart irrigation controller, and learning about the best management practices for a healthy, sustainable lawn. Our Lawn Water Conservation Educator will answer any lawn questions your event attendees may have.
