Love Your Leaves
September 10 • 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Learn to love your leaves with Sustainable Princeton and Morven. Take part in a free interactive workshop focused on loving and managing leaves in a sustainable way at your home.
Fallen leaves can be a nuisance for homeowners, who often remove them from lawns and backyards. Unfortunately, these practices lead to piles of leaves in municipal streets, creating safety hazards, blocking stormwater drains, and feeding unhealthy algae blooms in our waterways.
What can you do to make a difference? Leave your leaves where they can do some good for your soil.
This free workshop includes:
- A hybrid talk (in-person and virtual) with Morven Horticulturist and Master Gardener, Louise Senior, on how to use your piles of leaves to care for your yard and garden this fall (starts at 2 p.m.)
- A Leaf Corral DIY Workshop with Sustainable Princeton (starts at 3 p.m.)
- Leaf-inspired crafts for the whole family
- A raffle to win an all-electric leaf blower/vacuum (must be present in-person to win)
Love Your Leaves Talk – The hybrid talk with Louise Senior will be offered both virtually and in person. If you’d like to participate in the program virtually, please select the virtual ticket option upon registration. You will receive a Zoom link in your email confirmation. The program will be recorded and a link shared publicly following the event.
Leaf Corral DIY Workshop: Join Sustainable Princeton in a Leaf Corral DIY Workshop at 3:00 p.m. A leaf corral can hold the leaves in your yard and allow them to mature into compost, providing a rich fertilizer for future application. All materials will be provided for free. Please indicate your interest in participating upon registration (pre-registration is required). Registration for the workshop will close one week prior to the event. Questions? Contact email@example.com
