Julie Berbiglia will be sharing information about how we can get credit for all our hard work preserving and nourishing our yards. Join PPS on February 20 to learn how your yard can be transformed into a Certified Tennessee Smart Yard to attract more pollinators, conserve water, and look great. Find out how what you are already doing in your yard will count towards your certification and the additional steps you need to take to get you all the way there.
