Learn yard care the natural way

In case you haven’t noticed, it’s spring.

It’s time to go outside, so the city of Everett, the Snohomish County WSU Extension and the Snohomish Conservation District teamed up to present a series of free workshops on taking care of your yard the natural way.

The first one, Natural Yard Care with Ciscoe Morris, is from 6 to 8 tonight at Everett Station, Weyerhaeuser Room, 3201 Smith Ave., Everett.

Soils, Pests and Compost, Oh My! takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. April 17 at the Everett Public Library, 2702 Hoyt Ave, Everett.

Choosing Plants and Lawn Care will be presented from 6 to 8 p.m. April 24 at the Everett Library.

Smart Watering: Save Water and Time! will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. May 1 at the library.

The series ends with the Rain Garden Tour from 10 to 11:30 a.m. May 4. Meet at Washington Oakes, 1717 Rockefeller Ave., Everett, to take off on this walking tour.
