This month our volunteer day will be a bit unusual. LA County will be offering a Free Smart Gardening, Beginner Workshop. The community is welcome to attend the workshop (10 – 11:30 am), work in the park (9 – noon), or do both. (More information on the volunteer cleanup will be posted shortly.)
During the Smart Gardening Workshop you will learn the basic techniques of backyard composting, worm composting, water-wise gardening, grasscycling, and edible gardening. No reservations needed. Purchase compost bins at a discount after the workshop.
Parking and entrance to the park are on 100 block of Pasadena Avenue in South Pasadena, east of York Street Bridge. The workshop will be held in the park, on the eastern side near the golf course driving range and the bicycle/pedestrian path.
