Free Gardening Classes

Would you like a great looking lawn or garden that requires minimal water? Central Basin, in partnership with Los Angeles County and the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, host free gardening workshops to educate individuals on simple gardening techniques that will conserve water and energy while their garden flourishes. The hands-on workshops are typically between an hour and a half to two hours long. Please see the list below for our upcoming schedule. If you have any questions, please contact Sandi Linares-Plimpton, sandilp@centralbasin.org or (323) 201-5511.
