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 bin at a discount after each workshop. A free bin will be raffled off to an attendee at workshops marked with a .

Visit our instructional videos for an idea of what is taught. Many agencies and private groups also hold gardening classes. We have compiled a list of classes and events to feed your interest.
