Oakland Lawn to Garden Party

Saturday | May 06, 2017 | 9:30 am — 1:00 pm

Location in Oakland, CA

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.
