Turning an Overgrown Site into a Maintainable Natural Area

Saturday, April 28, 2018

1:00 p.m.4:00 p.m.

This workshop will take us through the process of transforming overgrown areas into natural areas that are safe, beautiful, enjoyable, ecologically beneficial, and manageable. We’ll examine the physical conditions of the overgrown rock-outcrop area at the Roberto Clemente Community Garden and identify the plants, determining which to keep and which to remove. We’ll go into the kinds of plantings and people-centered spaces that might be possible, the techniques of site preparation and planting, and the care to give it over time.

This workshop is also offered in English translation.

Please RSVP on Eventbrite.
