The Introduction to Sustainable Gardening series is a three-part workshop series designed to help you transform your backyard into a thriving, sustainable garden!

Join us in our beautiful, urban, outdoor teaching garden for this dynamic and hands-on program designed to get you gardening.

This course will teach you everything you need to know to plant flourishing perennial gardens that save water, and attract pollinators and beneficial insects. Take classes individually, or sign up for the whole Introduction to Sustainable Gardening series.

San Francisco is a beautiful and unique city, with mild temperatures year round and dry, foggy summers. Learn what plants are adapted to our coastal climate and grow without the need for toxic pesticides or large amounts of water. This course will focus on native and drought-tolerant ornamental gardens, but will cover broad topics that can also apply to vegetable gardening.

This course is generously sponsored by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.
