Homeowner Workshops

New for 2014

Folsom will be doing something a little different this year.  Instead of 4 monthly workshops we are offering a 10 week series called the “Green Gardener @ Home".  This is an exciting series adapted from a program originally developed for landscape professionals.  This series would normally cost between $65 to $90, but thanks to a grant obtained by our library director, Lisa Dale, we are able to offer it free of charge.  Registration begins on March 4th and space is limited so don’t hesitate.  See details below.

If you would like to be included on our e-mail notification list to receive information about future workshops and events, please send your e-mail address to: waterconservation@folsom.ca.us
