The Claverack Free Library will host a Home Energy Efficiency Workshop
Saturday, March 4 from 4:00 PM -5:00 PM.
This is a free workshop for homeowners to encourage participation in the New York State Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program. The Program provides a free or low cost home energy assessment and report, incentives and low interest loans for properties that are primary or second homes. Homeowners can improve the energy efficiency of their homes, saving money on utility bills, increasing comfort, and raising property values. Based on income, the home energy assessment is free to 96% of NYS homeowners, with no obligation.
These programs have benefits both for homeowners and the community. Energy efficiency and conservation reduce energy consumption and costs, support sustainable community development, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and help create local green jobs. Bring your questions; stay for refreshments.
Parking is available on site.
Please pre-register by phone at 518 815-5667, in person, or email to email@example.com.
Add spice to your reading life!
New members always welcome.

Winter doesn’t have to be the worst season in our yards. Peter Bevacqua, garden and landscape designer, will show us how our gardens can look great all year long, even in winter, if we adhere to a few simple principles.
“Even with our winters”, Bevacqua says, “using these fundamental guidelines, our gardens and landscapes can be interesting and dramatic throughout the seasons – and winter is the best time of year to take a hard look and ask ourselves if our garden is really as good as it could be. Do we like what we see now? This is the time of year where answers can be revealed.”
Peter honed his gardening skills studying with Christopher Lloyd and Fergus Garrett at Great Dixter in England, and with Helen Dillon in her garden in Dublin. His garden has been featured in the New York Times, as well as in The Gardens of the Hudson Valley and in the Private Gardens of the Hudson Valley, both by Monacelli Press. His business, Peter Bevacqua Garden Design (pbgardendesign.com), is located here in Claverack.
