Restoration: Soil and Soul
March 14 10am-2pm
In this Saturday workshop, participants will locate themselves in watershed place and its history. Here, Creek Hollow Wash runs through an oak preserve with riparian habitat. The hillsides offer chaparral ecology. In an interpretative hike through native habitats, we explore the environmental importance and medicinal uses of native plants through five (or more) senses. With a variety of potted native plants on hand, we will plant and restore their distribution on the Retreat Center grounds.
- Check weather reports and dress appropriately. - Bring your garden gloves and spades (we'll have digging tools available)
- We'll provide a native plant guide and
interpretation, you'll bring your one for planting
- Enjoy a complimentary light lunch at our
expansive outdoor kitchen/picnic area.
- After workshop hours, feel free to explore SFRC!
- 10-2pm. $20, lunch included.
