Free San Francisco Classes: Sustainable Landscaping & Composting

Full disclosure: PG&E; is a TreeHugger sponsor (or "was", if you are reading this post a long time after it was published). If you are outside of the San Francisco Bay Area, you probably don't see their ads on the site, but we want to be transparent about it anyway.

Via Lets Green This City (a site sponsored by PG&E;), we found two interesting free classes for you San Francisco residents: On April 7th (from 10 AM to 1 PM) there's a Sustainable Landscape Installation class at the Alemany Farm (maps here). It's the last class in their Resource Efficient Gardening and Landscaping (RELE) program, but prior attendance in RELE classes is not required.

The second free class on April 15th (from 11 AM to 1 PM) is Spring Composting at the Double Rock Community Garden (Griffith & Fitzgerald, located in the back of the Alice Griffith Housing Development). "This fun, hands-on class teaches methods for backyard and worm composting for home and community gardens. Come learn what you can do to improve your garden and prevent organic waste from ending up in the landfill!"Also, don't forget to sign up for the solar power classes that we previously mentioned:
