Learn how to make your very own compost! The backbone of every healthy garden, compost improves all soil types and can be a difference between success and failure with many plants. In this class, we will teach you how to make compost in your backyard, and introduce you to our worms that make their own, special fertilizer. We will also give you tips on using your city compost bin. Come learn what you can do to improve your garden and prevent organic waste from ending up in the landfill! These FREE workshops are sponsored by the SF Department of Environment . —- FAQs What are my transportation/parking options? Although there is street parking available, it can be challenging on weekends. Public transportation is frequent and nearby, so it’s a great option! The 6, 36, 43, and 44 bus lines and the N Judah all run within a few blocks of the garden. Forest Hill Station is also nearby and you can take the 43 or 44 directly from there to the garden. What should I bring to the workshop? Classes are held outside in our teaching garden. We recommend bringing a hat and sunscreen, comfortable closed toed shoes, a full water bottle, snacks, and lots of layers. You may also want to bring a notebook to take notes on what you are learning and you are welcome to bring your lunch and join us for a picnic lunch in the garden at noon, after class is over. Do you ever cancel workshops? We try our best not to cancel, but if the weather forecast suggests it is very likely to be pouring rain, we will cancel the workshop and notify attendees by 5pm the day before. We do hold classes in drizzling weather, however, so come prepared with rain gear. We are also occasionally forced to cancel workshops due to other unforeseen circumstances. In any case, we will happily register you for another workshop or refund your workshop fee. Happy gardening!
