Make Your Home River-Friendly — Workshop + Brewery Tour [WAITLIST]

Submitted by srich on Wed, May 14 - 3:22 PM
 Join us for our premier Watershed Action Workshop, then enjoy a tour of our host brewery, Flat Earth!  

Sorry! This event has reached capacity, but we are taking a waitlist, see below.

Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth, run the dishwasher on full — there are many ways to improve the health of our local waters from home. But how do you know where to start? And what really makes the biggest difference?

Join FMR's Stewardship Coordinator Adam Flett to learn about practices and small projects you can take on inside your home, be it a mansion or a studio apartment, to significantly improve your water footprint. We'll quickly cover the basics, touching on both well-known lessons and lesser-known tools to help you figure out the most effective ways and resources to make your home river-friendly.

Topics include:
- the biggest water users in your house or apartment (both direct and indirect usage)
- where to take leftover prescription drugs
- alternatives to household products containing triclosan and other river polluters 

*Brewery Tour, Beer Sampling, and Growler Giveaway!*

Following the presentation, participants will enjoy a free tour of our host's historic brewery and sample their highly regarded craft beers. We'll also be giving one lucky participants a free growler of Flat Earth Brewing Company beer!

We're excited to have Flat Earth Director of Operations Franco Claseman participating in the event, and excited to partner with Flat Earth to host one of our first "Brewing Clean Water" series events! The Brewing Clean Water series brings FMR and local breweries together to promote clean water. Because without clean water, we can't have great beer.

This workshop is free, thanks to the generous support from our partners like Flat Earth and funders:
- City of St. Paul Public Works Department and Capitol Region Watershed District, supporting FMR events and programs that reduce water pollution in our capital city,
- and the McNeely Foundation, working with FMR to support more river-related volunteer and educational events on St. Paul's East Side.
