Workshops


We encourage you to attend a free Smart Gardening workshop to improve your lawn/garden and reduce waste. No reservations needed. Workshops are about 1.5 hours and are held at Learning Centers, libraries, parks, and schools. Beginner Workshops introduce you to smart gardening. Advanced Workshops are for those who love to garden (schedule listed at bottom).

Purchase a backyard or worm compost bins at a discount after each workshop. A free bin will be raffled off to an attendee at workshops marked with a star. Five pomegranate trees (1-gallon) will be raffled off at workshops marked with a fruit. Visit our instructional videos for an idea of what is taught.
