Greeley’s 2020 Landscape Lecture Series


Greeley’s Water Conservation program is once again offering its popular Landscape Lecture Series in 2020. The goal of the workshops is to promote sustainable landscape practices in the community.

The first lecture of the season, Xeriscape 101, is on Jan. 15. This is an excellent class for beginners interested in learning the basics of xeriscape. Participants will be walked through the seven principles of xeriscape, which will help create a beautiful, thriving, and water-efficient yard. “I like to offer an introductory class on xeriscape at the beginning of each year to set a foundation for future sessions,” said Ruth Quade Greeley’s Water Conservation Manager and presenter for this landscape lecture.

Attend Greeley’s Landscape Lecture Series, beginning at 6:30 p.m. The location for all events is the City Council Chambers in City Center South, 1001 11th Ave.
