Community Events and Talks
LEAF Workshop Series
LEAF is a volunteer organization bringing people together to grow healthy pesticide free food and to learn about environmentally sustainable gardening and ecological practices.
Lawn to Garden Party
Not like any other lawn party, this one gives you a chance to help convert a lawn into a garden all in one day! Come join us in Berkeley as we transform a lawn using cardboard, compost and mulch. StopWaste educators and staff will be on hand to guide us as we sheet mulch and plant a new garden. This is a great opportunity to see the whole process, from curb cutting, prep, actual sheet mulching and planting. Participants will learn about lawn conversion rebates, drought tolerant plant choices, and sheet mulch materials.
At the end of the event there will be a raffle drawing for some great garden gifts. Please register to receive location details and so that we have a head count for seasonal snacks and tools.
