June 10, 2020 – Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) is taking sustainable landscaping online. Business leaders are invited to attend the free webinar, Discover Your Sustainable Corporate Landscape, on Thursday, June 18 at noon.
CVC’s Deborah Kenley, Senior Coordinator, Greening Corporate Grounds will discuss how to build resilience with sustainable landscaping. Sustainable landscaping is the application of environmentally beneficial landscaping practices, like planting native species, reducing conventional lawn cover and managing stormwater to prevent flooding. The short presentation will be followed by a live question and answer session.
“We know business leaders are busy running their businesses. Our goal is to help make the transition from conventional to sustainable landscaping practices easy,” says Ms. Kenley. “We want to reduce barriers for businesses who want to adopt more sustainable practices.”
Sustainable landscaping has financial, social and environmental benefits for businesses. It may also help Mississauga businesses qualify for the City of Mississauga’s Stormwater Credit.
The Discover Your Sustainable Corporate Landscape webinar will cover the difference between sustainable and conventional landscaping, the benefits of making the switch and how to get started. Businesses in Mississauga are encouraged to attend and may receive free enrollment in the program. All participants with properties in the Credit River Watershed will receive a Greening Corporate Grounds sustainable landscaping package to help them get started with their projects.
