About this event

Weekend Workshops is the weekend workshop program at Arlington Garden. Workshops include volunteer projects, speaker or panel events, and small classes focused on topics related to our mission and regenerative gardening.

Volunteer Projects: Volunteers work on longer-term garden projects while learning regenerative gardening and landscaping.

Roots and Regeneration: Our guest-speaker workshop series focused on land stewardship, urban ecology, and our native ecosystems.

Outdoor Classroom: Classes and events devoted to special topics.

No prior experience is necessary for volunteer projects, but space is limited, and you are strongly encouraged to sign up for free in advance. Please bring water (there is a water bottle refill station but no drinking fountain), weather appropriate clothing, sunscreen, and gloves.

Here is the schedule of past and upcoming workshops for 2023 (schedule is tentative):

Volunteer Projects:

  • January 21 - help us prepare for the Theodore Payne Native Plant Garden Tour and learn the best techniques for planting native plants

  • April 8 - help us prepare for the Theodore Payne Native Plant Garden Tour this is an all-hands-on-deck cleaning day (the tour is right around the corner)

To order more than two tickets, please place multiple orders using a separate email address for each volunteer. Due to the nature of the workshop activities, all volunteers under 14 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

*By signing up to volunteer, you consent to having your photograph taken while in the garden and used in possible communication materials by Arlington Garden.

Arlington Garden is a climate-appropriate, habitat garden offering learning, inspiration, and enjoyment for all. We use only regenerative gardening techniques, which means that we harness natural processes to care for the garden. Workshop participants will acquire the knowledge and skills to practice regenerative gardening for themselves and learn about the natural world!
