Fall 2013 Landscaper Training Events in Yonkers

Live demonstrations and Q&A to learn more about leaf-mulching techniques were hosted by the City of Yonkers on September 24th,  October 1st (for both Spanish and English speakers), and October 16th (for both Spanish and English speakers).

The workshops were FREE and were led by experienced landscape professionals who have been successfully leaf-mulching for years. The workshops took place at Redmond Park’s North Pavilion in Yonkers.

Here are some photos from these sessions:
