The workshops will cover topics like plant selection and planting techniques, soil structure and testing, and minimum-risk pesticides. The workshops are part of DEC’s Be Green in the Great Lakes Project, funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The events will be held in Amherst on Aug. 2; Rochester on Aug. 3; the Italian-American Civic Association, 192 Bellew Ave., Watertown, on Aug. 8; and Syracuse on Aug. 9. The sessions will run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
