The 2023 edition of this popular home maintenance program features a collection of 13 workshops that take place from April through October, led by experts within the industry. These workshops cover a wide range of topics designed to educate residents regarding improvements and best practices for their homes. The schedule for this year’s series is focused on working to bring century homes into contemporary times while working to preserve the amazing and historic aspects that makes them so special. The best part?  Each workshop is hosted in a live format at unique locations around the community that are open to the public and free to attend.
