Description

Learn to take full advantage of the unique gardening climate in San Francisco, where you can grow your own fruits and vegetables year round. This workshop will focus on taking advantage of the rainy season by planting cold hardy crops such as garlic, peas, and edible perennials, as well as a tour of what’s growing at GFE in November. Bring questions and we'll do our best to answer them so you can reap a bountiful harvest!

FAQs

What are my transportation/parking options?

Although there is street parking available, it can be challenging on weekends. Public transportation is frequent and nearby, so it's a great option! The 6, 36, 43, and 44, bus lines and the N Judah all run within a few blocks of the garden. Forest Hill Station is also nearby and you can take the 43 or 44 directly from there to the garden.

What should I bring to the workshop?

Classes are held outside in our teaching garden. We recommend bringing a hat and sunscreen, comfortable closed toed shoes, a full water bottle, and lots of layers. You may also want to bring a notebook to take notes on what you are learning and you are welcome to bring food and join us for a picnic lunch in the garden at noon.

Do you ever cancel workshops?

We try our best not to cancel, but if the weather forecast suggests it is very likely to be pouring rain, we will cancel the workshop and notify attendees by 5pm the day before. We do hold classes in drizzling weather, however, so come prepared with rain gear. We are also occasionally forced to cancel workshops due to other unforeseen circumstances. In any case, we will happily register you for another workshop or refund your workshop fee.

Happy gardening!
