Event Details

In this workshop Jessica Arends will demonstrate how to build a raised bed for your garden. First, she'll briefly explore the form and function of raised beds so you can think through a custom design. Then, she'll discuss what types of wood and fasteners are best for this kind of project. With basic tools like a circular saw and drill, she will demonstrate how to assemble the bed so you can follow the same simple steps at home.

Jessica will build one raised bed during the class to demonstrate the process, and then raffle it off to interested attendees. 

This is a free workshop, but donations towards our material costs are very much appreciated.

Please note that space is limited for this class. Tickets are not required, but RSVPing guarantees you a seat. Walk-ins are welcome only if there is space available.

Community Forklift

Community Forklift is a nonprofit reuse center for home improvement supplies. We pick up donations of unwanted and salvaged building materials throughout the DC metro region. Then, we make the building materials available to the public at a low cost, and provide vintage materials for restoring old homes. We also offer public education about reuse, and distribute free supplies to local nonprofits and neighbors in need.
