Help us as we begin our 2nd year of taking Pearl Homes to the next level! We are holding a training session for select volunteers to help implement our Pearl Homes Sustainable Yard Program, Monday, December 10th at the Brock Environmental Center. Training will run from 5-7pm, and include pizza and drinks.



Following trainingvolunteers who agree to participate in the program will commit to completing at least 5 on-site homeowner assessments in 2019. Each assessment should take no longer than 30 minutes, and will assess whether the residence is an appropriate site for either a rain barrel or soil test/Pearl Lawn Plan. In return volunteers will receive t-shirt, all necessary tools and information for site visit, and training. (If eligible,volunteers may also participate in the Sustainable Yard Program.)
