What's this all about?

The San Francisco Department of Public Works has teamed up with the SF Botanical Garden Society and SF Parks Trust to bring you free Saturday workshops to teach you everything you need to know to "green" your sidewalk.

We'll give you step-by-step instructions to transform your sidewalk into a garden including permitting, designing and maintenance. We've got recommendations for trees and drought tolerant plants for sun or shade, and design ideas to boot!

When are these workshops?

Classes held Saturday mornings from February to November, 2011, from 9:00 am-10:00am at the County Fair Building at the San Francisco Botanical Garden.
