Nov. 26: CBCC Plant Swap
November 26 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The Coral Bay Community Council (CBCC) will be hosting the following professional and informative community events in Coral Bay during November. Its goal is to provide technical updates and information to professionals and residents on best stormwater management practices using vegetation for St. John construction and landscaping. This is an excellent time of the year to plant trees, bushes, groundcover and grasses. Food and drinks will be available for purchase at each venue during the events.
A Community Workshop Event, Plant Swap, will be held from 4-6 p.m., Monday, Nov. 26, at Wok on the Beach. Those who need some variety in their landscape or garden, here’s is chance to trade plants and gardening tips. Mary Vargo, CBCC Environmental Programs associate, will lead this event. Come learn about some of the vegetation that can be used for stormwater runoff during the best time of the year for planting. All are welcome – come late after work if necessary.
These workshops are made possible by funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Coral Reef Conservation Program, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, and the V.I. Department of Planning and Natural Resources through the Environmental Protection Agency’s 319(h) Grant Program. CBCC is a nonprofit organization that acts as the local Watershed Management Agency.
