You have dreams of an edible garden, but how can you grow beautiful, nutritious food without wasting water or using harmful chemicals? Join us for this class and to learn simple practices that can help you create a healthy and abundant garden. We'll talk about how to grow edibles with water conservation in mind, how to eliminate toxic chemicals from your gardening, and how to build a healthy garden ecosystem to control pests. Let nature do the work and enjoy the bounty of a home garden!

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.
