Workshops
We encourage you to attend a free Smart Gardening workshop to improve your lawn/garden and reduce waste. No reservation needed. Workshops are about 1.5 hours, held at our Learning Centers and at libraries, parks, and schools. Beginner Workshops introduce you to smart gardening.

Visit our instruction videos for an idea of what is discussed. Many agencies and private groups also hold smart gardening related classes; we compiled a list of classes and events to feed your interest.
