Learn how to remove your lawn without tearing it out! These how-to talks are given by Bay-Friendly Qualified Landscape Professionals, who provide design and plant selection advice as well as walk you through converting your lawn without breaking your back, or your wallet. There will be a hands-on demonstration of sheet mulching – an innovative technique of layering materials on top of your lawn, allowing you to plant right into it!
Each hour and a half talk is followed by an hour of tabling, where you can get one-on-one advice from a garden design expert. All events are free and open to the public, and no prior registration is required.
Please check back in the spring for our schedule of spring talks!
