For Immediate Release – January 22, 2009
Bedford Hills, NY—SavATree announced today that they will conduct a workshop entitled “SavATree’s Realistic Approach to Sustainable Landscape Care” during the 2009 Bedford Environmental Summit at Fox Lane High School in Bedford, NY on Saturday, January 31 from 8:00 A.M. until 4:30 P.M.
The workshop is designed to provide attendees with realistic ways to take care of their trees, shrubs and lawn with the least intrusive methods possible. Organic, integrated and hybrid approaches will be discussed, as well as ways to go greener on your landscape without sacrificing health and natural beauty. The session will be presented by Daniel van Starrenburg, SavATree President and CEO, and Patrick Parker, Director of the SavATree Plant Health Care Program.
The Bedford Environmental Summit’s theme is “What You Can Do – A Path to Sustainability.” The schedule will provide a full day of informational lectures and eco-themed workshops addressing issues such as oil consumption, school food, a climate action plan for Bedford, locally supported agriculture and school and community gardens. The goal is to provide attendees with a better understanding of global and local environmental issues, information about local green resources, and specific action steps for what they can do within their community.
An expo of approximately 50 exhibitors will provide hands-on opportunities to experience the work of non-profits, businesses, student groups, and community organizations that are advancing the environmental cause. A special lunch will demonstrate the viability of the local sustainable food movement. Throughout the day, the summit will promote ongoing, individual and collaborative actions to create a sustainable community.
