The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works offers free Smart Gardening workshops to improve your lawn/garden and reduce waste. No reservations are needed. Workshops are about 1.5 hours and are held at Learning Centers, libraries, parks, and schools.

Beginner workshops introduce you to smart gardening and provide hands-on instruction on the basic techniques of composting, worm composting, water-wise gardening, and grasscycling.

Advanced workshops teach you organic gardening, landscaping with native drought-tolerant plants, and integrated pest management (environmentally-sound ways to control pests).
