Healthy gardens and landscapes are based on simple choices we make in our own backyards.
- Collecting free water when it falls from the sky
- Treating the soil right to keep it healthy
- Growing your own food
These are easy steps we can take to improve our own lives and our environment. Healthy soil gives us healthy plants full of nutrition without the harmful residual chemicals that store bought produce contain.
Learning as a group with expert guidance by seeing and doing makes the process fun and fulfilling.
Plus we will have lots of extra bonus discounts and giveaways throughout the workshop series.
Want more personalized guidance? Consider booking one of our 90-minute consultations.
We have partnered with the San Marcos Historical Society to show off their brand new sustainable Donor Garden landscape. This area is a living demonstration of rainwater harvesting, healthy soil and California native plants. In this series of workshops we will be teaching and demonstrating how to get the best out of your landscape with minimum effort, no harmful chemicals and very little water. Join us for one or all!
This Hands-on Workshop shows you the secrets
If you have:
Soil so hard and compacted that you can hardly dig
Soil that is clay, sandy or DG (Decomposed granite) that doesn’t hold enough water or holds too much
Plants and trees that look sickly or die
Very little good/healthy top soil
Soil with no life- no worms – just dead and dry
Then do yourself, your plants and your yard a favor by taking this hands on workshop. Learn from this 2 hour workshop and finally have a yard with gorgeous, dark, fertile soil.
A vibrant landscape can only grow from healthy soil. It’s not just “dirt” – it’s a thriving ecosystem of soil microbes! And the more we fuel it, the stronger our plants, foods, and climate become. As the old adage says, “The stronger your roots, the stronger your fruits.”
Many traditional gardening practices weaken the soil’s ecosystem. But, with a little knowledge and a few small adjustments, we can strengthen and harness the army of soil microbes to grow beautiful, low-maintenance plants.
In this hands-on workshop, you will learn:
5 common gardening methods that weaken our soil
How to turn troubled soil into healthy soil
How to build 3 inches of rich topsoil in 3 months
5 steps to a low-water, low-maintenance, beautiful yard
How to reduce your landscaping water bill by 95%
Your landscaping consumes as much as 70% of your household water bill! With a little knowledge and a few adjustments, you can save some serious money – without compromising the beauty of your yard.
