SRP Shade Tree Workshop offered in Avondale
SRP along with the Valley Permaculture Alliance is conducting a workshop in Avondale, educating customers about proper tree placement, planting techniques and care. Avondale will be hosting a workshop October 14,2017 at the Avondale City Hall.
Shading your home helps reduce cooling costs, improve air quality and lower the Valley's heat effect—without using a lot of water. After attending a workshop, customers will qualify for up to two free desert-adapted trees (approximately 4-to-6 foot saplings) to plant in energy-saving locations around the home.
