Our upcoming gardening workshops:

Planting with California Natives Workshop

California native plants have spent centuries adapting to our region’s growing conditions. Their benefits are plentiful - they take less work and need less water. Native plants improve soil, use fewer pesticides, and support beneficial insects. Find out how to add these beauties to your garden. We’ll also cover drought-tolerant options.

Soil and Compost: The Perfect Partnership Workshop

Soil is the foundation of all things green, and healthy soil prevents pests, promotes drought tolerance, and provides nutrients to your plants.
