Thursday: DIY Native Garden

(Via John Cordes on NextDoor)

“Install-It-Yourself” Native Garden

This is the second, yet stand-alone, class following the “Design-It-Yourself” talk in January. The speaker will cover the nuts and bolts of lawn removal, sheet mulching, soil percolation testing, transitioning to drip irrigation, plant acquisition, and planting techniques. This lecture provides a lot of material in a short time and is designed for a layperson who wants some tips on how to install a small native garden.

Thursday, March 16
7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Library Community Room
Mountain View Public Library
585 Franklin St Mountain View, CA
