Select Tour #3: Mow no Mo’!

This event has passed.

Get information on how to remove your lawn, select native plants, and design a water-conserving, pesticide-free garden that attracts wildlife.

Led by Kelly Marshall of Kelly Marshall Garden Design, Robyn Navarra of Zone 7, and Kathy Kramer, Bringing Back the Natives Garden Tour Coordinator.

In this hands-on workshop the group will work at a Livermore garden that currently has a lawn, but won’t when we are through with it! If you have them, bring a labeled long-handled shovel and rake, and gardening gloves, as we will be sheet mulching—cutting back turf, shoveling compost, laying cardboard, and spreading wood chips. We’ll work here until everyone has had a chance to try everything.

Bring a lunch to enjoy while spend we 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! Registration required — register online.
