Grow2Zero:
Gardening Webinars
Are Safe At Home With You


Bringing Gardening Knowledge To You Online
 

We are excited to announce that LA County’s Smart Gardening workshops are back in session!
 

As we all continue to follow safer-at-home guidelines, live workshops are now offered online via Zoom. The Grow2Zero Gardening team is excited to continue offering gardening and composting lessons, and we’ve modified our workshop types to better suit the online format. Each workshop will last approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes of Q&A. 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.

Small-Space Gardening: Learn to grow edible and decorative plants in containers and set up a small-space worm composting system.

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.

Our schedule of upcoming webinars can be found at SmartGardening.com.

Ready, Set, Grow!
Things are heating up quickly, and there’s no better time to start planting than the present. Our online workshops will equip you with the tools and knowledge needed to start composting and gardening right away. We know that access to healthy food is a pressing concern for many right now, and we’re here to help you start growing your own fruits and vegetables as soon as possible if you aren’t doing so already.

Here are some quick tips for edible gardening at this time of year: If you planted cucumbers, tomatoes and/or summer squash in early spring, think about planting a second round of plants now that can replace your original plants once they start to wither so you have a continued harvest. Other good plants to start right now are heat-loving crops like peppers, eggplants, pumpkin and watermelon.

Start Learning NOW. For those of you who’d like to dive into your garden education prior to joining us for one of our virtual workshops, the following resources are an excellent place to start:

  • Gardening in LA: Master Gardener Yvonne Savio blogs regularly on topics pertaining to gardening in SoCal. She provides incredible detail to help ensure success for everyone from the novice to the pro, and the site also includes a comprehensive month-by-month planting guide and job listings for those working in the gardening space. Savio is based in Pasadena so her month-by-month planting guide is suited to the inland/San Gabriel Valley climate. 
  • LA Garden Blog: David King, another local gardening expert, shares his own month-by-month gardening tips and updates on gardening events and educational opportunities throughout Los Angeles. King is based at the Venice Learning Garden so his planting guide is more suited to the milder Westside climate. 
  • How To Plant an Urban Garden: This easy-to-follow but robust introduction to urban gardening with an emphasis on working with limited space and/or limited sunlight comes, surprisingly enough, from Fast Company magazine.
