Free Gardening Workshops

Smart Gardening

From selecting plants that add color and interest to gardens without requiring a lot of water or maintenance to turning yard waste and food scraps into a rich soil amendment, home gardeners will benefit from the Smart Gardening and Composting workshops the City is offering this summer in partnership with Los Angeles County. These workshops take place 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.at the Diamond Bar Center, 1600 Grand Avenue, and do not require advance registration.


The June 22, August 10, and September 28 workshops are tailored for beginners looking to learn the basics of backyard composting, water-wise gardening, grasscycling, worm composting, and edible gardening, while the July 20 workshop will teach advanced gardening topics such as organic gardening, drought-tolerant landscaping, and integrated pest management.


At the conclusion of every workshop, participants will have the option of purchasing a regular backyard compost bin for $40 (valued at $100) or a worm compost bin (includes worms) for $65 (valued at $140).
For more information, contact the City’s Environmental Services Division by phone at (909) 839-7015 or by email.
