Green Iowa AmeriCorps and Center on Sustainable Communities (COSC) are offering a new hands-on workshop series, "Grow Your Green," to help homeowners learn simple ways to live more sustainably. A free workshop in that series will be held on Jan. 30 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Smokey Row Coffee Co., 1910 Cottage Grove Ave. in Des Moines. The workshop will address weatherization techniques homeowners can do themselves to eliminate cold drafts and lower energy bills. The Green Iowa AmeriCorps members are also producing humorous and informative video skits to promote each Grow Your Green workshop. To reserve a seat for the free event, visit COSC's Facebook page or call 515-277-6222.
