This fall the Bringing Back the Natives Garden Tour is will be offering five workshops where you can learn how to remove your lawn (and get paid for it, too!); install drip irrigation (rebates are available for this task, also); or garden sustainably. In addition to the workshops, on Sunday, October 25 you can visit any or all of the half dozen nurseries that are participating in Native Plant Sale Extravaganza. Details on these events are below.
Fall workshops—This fall you can learn how to remove your lawn (and get paid for it, too!) at workshops that will be held in Oakland and Pleasant Hill;. If you would like to reduce your water bill—and if you have better things to do on your weekends than to mow, weed, spray pesticides, or water your lawn—this is the workshop for you.
In addition, you can learn how to install a water-conserving drip irrigation system (and get paid for that as well), and how to garden sustainably by growing your own fruit, raising chickens, or storing rainwater. Register early; these workshops will fill. $35. 
Native Plant Sale Extravaganza—On Sunday, October 25 the Bringing Back the Natives Garden Tour’s Fall Native Plant Sale Extravaganza will take place! Shop to your heart’s content at any of the six participating native plant nurseries; you can feel extra good about doing so, as a portion of the proceeds from this sale go to support the Tour. No registration is necessary.
