Spring Environment Training w/ Seattle Tilth!

Take Action for the Environment!
Tilth Alliance Trains Community Volunteers this Spring to Protect Natural Resources in Seattle and King County
 

Are you concerned about threats to our land and water? Do you feel that more needs to be done to prevent climate change? You are not alone! Many people are wondering what they can do locally to make the world a better place right now. Tilth Alliance offers two different sustainability trainings this spring to empower community members to take action to protect the environment – get involved!

Through classroom learning, hands-on practice and field trips, discover the relationship between soil, water and climate — and learn how you can protect these invaluable resources in important ways. After the training, participants volunteer in their communities by creating demonstration projects and teaching practical techniques to others.

Choose from TWO volunteer training programs (one in Seattle and one in King County offered at two locations):

King County: Soil and Water Stewardship
Learn about food systems, water conservation, storm water management, soil science, sustainable gardening and behavior change. This volunteer training consists of 24 hours of education through a combination of classroom learning and hands-on practice. Choose from the Eastside or South King County training options, with class sessions taking place at different locations within each geographic area.
