Green Living Labs are a Saturday workshop series at Bluegrass Greensource, where staff present short, engaging workshops to help you build new skills and to live more sustainably. They cover a variety of topics, from gardening to green cleaners at home. Sometimes we bring in the experts, such as our friends from Seedleaf, to lead workshops in their fields. Whatever the topic, we design the labs to match your interests. Green Living Lab offers something for everyone!
