Sidewalk Landscaping (211-445)

Sat, Mar 29, 10:00am--3:00pm
Sun, Mar 30, 10:00am--2:00pm

San Francisco's sidewalks contain more open space than all city parks combined. Now, with a special city permit, homeowners can reclaim their bit of green space. Converting your sidewalk from paving to planting creates a greener city and keeps water going into the ground instead of into the sewers. This practical, hands-on workshop covers every aspect of transforming your sidewalk into a living treasure. Jane Martin from Plant*SF walks us through the permit process, takes a look at practical, easy-to-maintain designs and winning plant combinations including native Bay Area plants. Saturday workshop and Sunday hands-on experience.

APLD CEU's: 4.5 for both days
