Growing Young Gardeners at Wegman’s

A local Daisy Troop visited Wegman’s Nursery this last Sunday. 15 girls took a tour of the shop, listened to a talk on plants, and potted a painted pot on site. They then went over to the rest home across the street and gifted the pots to the elderly. We loved hosting these young gardeners!

Garden for the Environment will offer the following workshops and events in March and April 2023. All will be at Garden for the Environment, San Francisco’s teaching garden, 1590 7th Avenue (at Lawton). Founded in 1990, our garden offers informative, hands-on workshops on most Saturdays that teach Bay Area residents how to grow climate-appropriate gardens and food, make compost, and conserve water. We hope you’ll join us for some of these terrific learning opportunities – we’re excited to have you in the garden! Masks to help prevent COVID transmission are optional for fully vaccinated individuals and required for unvaccinated individuals.

Introduction to Sustainable Gardening Series: Spring

When: Saturday, March 4th, 11th, and 18th, 10am - 12pm
Cost: $30 for the full three-part series, and receive a $10 gift card at each workshop

Sponsored by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission

The Introduction to Sustainable Gardening series is a three-part workshop series designed to help you transform your yard into a thriving, sustainable garden. This course will teach you everything you need to know to nurture perennial gardens that conserve water, provide beauty, and attract pollinators and beneficial insects.

San Francisco is a beautiful and unique city, with year-round mild temperatures and dry, foggy summers. Learn what plants are adapted to our coastal climate and grow without the need for toxic pesticides or lots of water. This course will focus on native and drought-tolerant ornamental gardens but will cover broad topics that can also apply to vegetable gardening.

Registering will sign you up for the full series of three workshops. Please only register if you plan to attend all three sessions.

When: Saturday, March 18th, 10 – 12pm
Cost: Reduced: $25; Regular: $37; Full: $50

So you're thinking of becoming a beekeeper? This workshop is an introduction to bees and beekeeping practices whether you're starting a backyard hive or are just curious about bees. We'll cover equipment and tools needed, bee biology basics, and provide practical knowledge to get your beekeeping journey started. There will be a class outline, suggested reading and further recommendations provided. If weather permits, students will see the hives close-up. Protective clothing will be provided.

The class is designed for absolute beginners so no prerequisite knowledge is required.  We will have more beginning beekeeping workshops this year, and each will emphasize what is happening in a beehive throughout the seasons. Keep checking our workshop schedule for more beekeeping workshops!
