Lawn to GARDEN Parties

Not like any other lawn parties – these give you an opportunity to help convert a lawn into a garden using sheet mulch, all in one day! StopWaste staff, Bay-Friendly Qualified Landscape Professionals, and sheet mulch educators are all on hand to provide guidance. 

You will get to see the entire process and then can use what you learn to convert your own lawn. We will provide how to brochures and information about water rebates that are available from local agencies. There will also be a drawing for garden gifts at the end of the party.

Upcoming Schedule

Oakland Lawn to Garden Party

Saturday, May 6th, 2017 from 9:30 am to 1 pm

Not like any other lawn party – this party gives you a chance to help convert a lawn into a garden using sheet mulch, all in one day!  

We’ll be supporting a local church as they recharge their back edible garden. StopWaste educators will be on hand, along with Bay-Friendly designer, Ann Morrison, owner of Chrysalis Gardens, to guide us as we sheet mulch and plant the 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 as well as drought tolerant plant choices and can access a discount coupon to use on sheet mulch materials for their own lawn conversion.

At the end of the event, there will be a drawing for other garden gifts and plants. Please register to receive location details and so that we have a head count for tools and tasty seasonal snacks.
