Life After Lawn: Beautiful Alternatives
Create a beautiful and sustainable landscape without a turf lawn!
This class covers a range of topics that focus on water conservation and pollution prevention, using our gardens to add to our local ecoystem and protect our natural resources. These discounted workshops are brought to you by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. Workshop fees are used to maintain the garden and support educational programs led by the Garden for the Environment.
The SFPUC provides its customers with high quality, efficient and reliable water, power, and sewer services in a manner that is inclusive of environmental and community interests, and that sustains the resources entrusted to its care. Learn more about the SFPUC at www.sfwater.org.
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.
