Class covers methods for lawn removal and ideas for what to do afterwards

Join the Washington County Master GardenerTM Association for a free in-person class that will cover methods to remove turf and look at options on what to do next.

Whether installing an eco- lawn, planting drought-tolerant plants (both native and non-native) or moving towards all-native planting, the session will cover planning, prepping, planting, irrigation, and growing. OSU Extension Master Gardener Volunteers Susan Albright and Lisa Barnhart will lead participants through the steps and answer questions.

The class will be 9 to 11 a.m. September 9 at Portland Community College Rock Creek Campus, 17705 NW Springville Rd, building 4, room 103. It’s free and registration is not required. Space is available on a first come, first seated basis and the capacity for the classroom is 30.

Barnhart became a Master Gardener because of her love of growing and preserving fruits and vegetables. She serves on the board of the Washington County Master Gardener Association. When not gardening, Lisa enjoys sewing, crafting, cooking, and spending time in the great Oregon outdoors.

Albright has participated in the Xerces’ PNW Bumblebee Atlas, the Oregon Bee Atlas (OBA) and the Oregon Bee Project. She has led many MG classes on a variety of topics and was honored by the Oregon Master Gardener Association as one of their 2021 Statewide Master Gardeners of the Year.
