Because Life Should Be Beautiful

Educational Events

As part of its mission to promote beautification, Columbia Green hosts at least one Educational Event a year that empowers members to make their landscapes more attractive. These programs teach gardening techniques and allow participants to network with other citizens interested in beautifying the Columbia area.
