Learn with the Patt​ersons

July 11, 2017

5:30 – 7 p.m.

Join Rich and Marion Patterson for a tour of their enchanting yard on July 11 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

The Pattersons, longtime residents of Cedar Rapids and Bankers Trust clients, have managed their two-acre yard for efficiency, water retention, food production, beauty, and diversity of wildlife. They will show the many technologies and management strategies they have incorporated into their home and yard that greatly reduce the cost of living in their space. These include energy efficiency and photovoltaics.

Rich and Marion are opening their space for friends of Bankers Trust to enjoy and learn. A dual entry Phoenix Labyrinth in the front yard invites people to walk and reflect. The pullets in the back provide endless entertainment, recycle food scraps and provide healthy, tasty eggs. Rain barrels capture water and photovoltaics reduce electrical consumption. The bird diversity ranges from Orioles to rose-breasted Grosbeaks to all seven species of woodpeckers common in Eastern Iowa.

Come walk with us!​
