Bay-Friendly Gardening means simplifying garden care, reducing chores and using as few resources, from water to fertilizer, as possible.

Bay-Friendly gardeners work with nature to reduce waste and prevent pollution of local creeks, waterways and San Francisco Bay.

The Bay-Friendly Gardening workshops are offered by the StopWaste.Org and its Bay-Friendly Gardening partners: The Watershed Project, EBMUD, the Alameda Countywide Clean Water Program, and the Alameda County Flood Control and Water Conservation District.

This hands-on workshop will offer vegetable gardening basics including: soil preparation, when and what to plant for our local climate, companion planting and pest control, plus creative ways to use your bountiful harvest. Seeds, catalogs, regional food source information, and other handouts will be provided.

Register online. Registration starts March 23.

Cost: Free.
