Happy Winter Solstice 2018



As we look toward lengthening daylight and a new year, we want to thank you for being part of our journey during the past three years.

2018 has been another inspiring year for the Smart Yards Co-op team and the Smart Yards Education board. It has been filled with fun, and educational experiences working with such an enthusiastic community committed to making a difference. We also celebrated our third annual Earth Day educational workshop, Our Watersheds, Our Yards: Greywater & Storm Rain Relationship with over 70 participants.

Thanks to your support, in the last three years we transformed approximately 100,000 square feet of thirsty lawns into beautiful, fun and sustainable outdoor living spaces with designs based on Permaculture principles. This resulted in a savings of over 4 million gallons of water per year CO2 emissions and dust pollution.

We hope the winter solstice brings you and your loved ones peace, restfulness, and recreation.

We look forward to our continued work and relationship in the new year!

In Cooperation,

The Smart Yards Co-op and Smart Yards Education Team
