Hamptons homeowners will be able to learn about sustainable practices for landscaping and gardening in the East End watershed during the Perfect Earth Project's Sustainable Practices for East End Watersheds: A Free Workshop for Local Homeowners at The Nature Conservancy's Center for Conservation in East Hampton on Sunday, October 9th. From 10 a.m. to 12.30 p.m., hear from some of the area's top landscape designers and architects, who will cover how to design and maintain beautiful home gardens without using the harmful and toxic chemicals that are so prevalent in contemporary maintenance techniques, many of which harm our island's water quality, as well. By educating homeowners about safe and proper landscaping and gardening, Perfect Earth Project hopes to improve the East End's water quality and provide solutions to the nitrogen pollution.

"Having a toxin-free lawn and garden is one thing every homeowner can do today—for free!—to have an immediate impact on the health of our bodies and our local bodies of water," explained Jess Tonn of the Perfect Earth Project. "We're proud to be partnering with the Friends of Georgica Pond and The Nature Conservancy to help homeowners transition their properties to toxin-free and incorporate other nitrogen-reducing technologies into their homes. We'll have a knowledgeable team of landscape architects and designers on hand, so bring your garden design and maintenance questions."
