Join us to discover how you can save time and money, and create a beautiful, WaterSmart garden! In this hands-on workshop you’ll learn how to remove your lawn, select native plants, and design a water-conserving, pesticide-free garden that attracts wildlife.
During this workshop the group will work at a Lafayette home garden that currently has a lawn, but won’t when we are through with it! In addition to the hands-on experience, we will answer your sheet-mulching questions, provide you with a list of resources, talk about how to select native plants and where to purchase them, and let you know how you can get rebates from your local water district for removing your lawn. You’ll leave this workshop feeling confident that you can sheet-mulch your own lawn away!

What past participants said:
“This was a fabulous workshop and it was so useful to actually take part in the mulching process. There is nothing better than the hands-on experience. Thank you so much, a really enjoyable day.”
“This was great. I have read many articles on sheet mulching, but until you experience the entire process up front and personal, you just don’t get it. Thank you.”
“The process of learning how to sheet mulch was great. We were a bit intimidated by the process but now are confident that we can complete our project and do it well.”
“I enjoyed the low key, casual, up-beat, can do atmosphere. It was wonderful to be among others who are interested in learning and exploring new possibilities. Thank you!”
