Looking for gardening ideas? Visit the Water-Wise and Natural Plant Care demonstration sites at Garden for the Environment, located at the corner of 7th Avenue and Lawton Street in San Francisco’s Inner Sunset Neighborhood. A self-guided walking tour of the garden will illustrate examples of water-wise plantings, efficient irrigation practices, and organic pest control techniques. On your tour of the garden, read through the informational signs for tips, techniques, and best practices for a beautiful, water-efficient, and less-toxic garden.
The garden is free and open to the public every day. Garden experts are onsite Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10am to 3pm to answer your specific questions. Through a partnership with Garden for the Environment, the SFPUC also sponsors free organic gardening workshops hosted at the demonstration gardens. See a list of upcoming classes.
