Planting with Natives
Saturday, October 14, 10 am-noon
Course code: 81390
California native plants have spent centuries adapting to our region's growing conditions, and their benefits are plentiful: they take less work, resources and water. Native plants improve soil, use fewer pesticides and are useful to beneficial insects. Find out how to add these beauties to your garden. We'll also cover drought tolerant options.

Composting and Mulching Basics
Saturday, November 11, 10 am-noon
Course code: 81391
Who knew yard debris and kitchen scraps could improve your soil? It's true - composting reduces waste sent to the landfill, helps you create your own free fertilizer and saves water. Learn about bins, equipment and materials used in a variety of composting styles. Each participating household will receive a compost bin (truck, van or SUV needed to transport).
