Organic Parks Workshop with Chip Osborne
What: Lisle Park District is transitioning four parks to organic and we want to show how they will do it! We will cover the importance of soil biology, cultural practices and other natural lawn care concepts.
Who: Natural lawn care expert Chip Osborne of Osborne Organics will provide a three hour crash course covering organic park management.
Who should attend: Managers of turf and other lands including those of park and school districts, municipalities, policymakers, non-profits and corporate campuses.
Cost: FREE! With a suggested $10 donation to the non-profit initiative Midwest Grows Green so we can provide refreshments and continue to assist communities with organic park and natural lawn care implementation.
