Learn yard care the natural way

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

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.
