Our presenter Fred Rozumalski is an ecologist and landscape architect with the water resources division of Barr Engineering Company located in Minneapolis, MN.   A believer in the power of every land owner’s potential to help regenerate ecological balance, Fred has developed a specialty in designing practical landscapes that sequester carbon, harvest storm water, and conserve energy.  Fred’s work ranges from writing city-wide green infrastructure plans and restoring native ecosystems to designing corporate urban environments that feature perennial food crops.  Fred is committed to teaching others to implement sustainable landscapes.

The cost for this workshop is $20. Advance registration is required through SoilBasics_FoTC.eventbrite.com or by contacting Fruits of the City via email (fruits@mnproject.org) or phone (651-789-3321).
