Crack the Concrete: Environmentally-Friendly Hardscaping

Garden for the Environment

Instructor: Elisa Baier
$10 - Sponsored by the SFPUC

Creating pathways and patios in your home garden can be a great way to make the space more accessible and useful, but there are better ways than pouring concrete! Join us to learn how you can incorporate water-efficient permeable hardscape surfaces into your landscape using natural or recycled materials.

INSTRUCTOR

Elisa Baier is the founder of Small Spot Gardens, a design/build landscape firm dedicated to helping city residents connect with the natural world. She studied botany as an undergrad and has worked for organic farms, orchards, nurseries and conservation organizations. In 2009, after several years of office work helping farmers with market development, she decided to get back outside and launched her own ecological landscaping business with the goal of creating healthy, vibrant outdoor spaces for people living in dense urban areas.

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options getting to the garden?

There is available street parking, though be advised it can be challenging on weekends. Many buses and trains stop nearby, making public transportation a great option! The 44 O'Shaughnessy, 6 Parnassus, N Judah and other lines all stop nearby.

What should I bring to the workshop?

Classes are held outside in our teaching garden. We recommend bringing a hat & sunscreen, comfortable closed toed shoes and lots of layers. You may want to bring a notebook to take notes on what you are learning and we recommend bringing a full water bottle as well.

Do you cancel classes due to rain?

We try our best not to cancel classes, but if the weather report suggests it is very likely it will be pouring rain during the class time, we will cancel the class that morning. We do hold classes in drizzling weather, and recommend students dress appropriately.

Happy gardening!
