Grow2Zero:
Smart Gardening Webinars Are A Hit!

 

Bringing Gardening Knowledge To You Online
 



We have been positively thrilled with the response to our online Smart Gardening webinars! We’ve consistently reached maximum capacity, so if you're interested in attending an upcoming webinar, please take a look at the schedule and sign up in advance.

The schedule of upcoming webinars can be found here: pw.lacounty.gov/epd/sg/webinars.cfm 

Each workshop lasts approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes of Q&A. Compost bins and worm bins are available for purchase at a discount at the conclusion of each webinar. Items ordered will be delivered to your doorstep. The topics are as follows:

  • Introduction to Composting: Learn the basics of using backyard and worm composting systems to create a rich soil amendment to nourish your garden.
  • Organic Gardening: How to build healthy soil, grow fruits and vegetables, and address common plant pests and diseases using organic methods. 
  • Water-Wise Gardening: Guidance on creating a beautiful drought-tolerant landscape, as well as grasscycling for responsible lawn care.
  • New! Small-Space Gardening: Learn to grow edible and decorative plants in containers and set up a small-space worm composting system.

All webinars are offered live, but if you’d like a sneak peek into what we cover in the Smart Gardening webinar series, check out these short videos on the LA County Public Works website: pw.lacounty.gov/epd/sg/quicktips.cfm

The Ups and Downs of Summer


We are deep into the summer growing season. If you’re lucky, that means you're swimming in tomatoes, squash, peppers and other goodies from the garden. But the long hot days also encourage plant pests and diseases to rear their ugly heads. We address some of the most common edible gardening issues in our Organic Gardening webinar. In the meantime, we recommend the following resource to learn more about pest and disease treatment options that are safe for you, your family and the planet: ipm.ucanr.edu/PMG/menu.homegarden.html 

And here are some additional articles and resources to address some of the most frequently asked questions we’ve received during our webinar series:
