"Discover a Sense of Place"

A series of 3 FREE workshops at The Gardens at Heather Farm, Walnut Creek Co-sponsored by the City of Walnut Creek Clean Water Program
Saturday, March  9,  23 and May 11 .    9 am - noon.

Discover what it is that makes Diablo Valley - this place we call home - such a unique and fascinating bioregion.  Learn how to become an eco-steward of the nature found in your community.

You will capture the spirit of what it means to know, cherish, and take care of our collective "backyard"!

Each of the three workshops will focus on a different aspect of our
habitat:   the importance of our local watershed; how nature can be
harnessed to prevent and fight disease in your garden; and the natural history of our region - how plant and animal species native to Diablo Valley have changed over time and why. Instructors are widely recognized
authorities in their field and live and work locally.   All programs
include hands-on activities outdoors!

Workshops can be taken individually or as a series. Pre-registration is required.
To register, call 947-1678  or go to

The six acres of organic gardens at The Gardens at Heather Farm inspire and educate the community about sustainable gardening and stewardship practices that contribute to the protection and preservation of our environment. The Gardens just celebrated its 40 year anniversary as a nonprofit. It is open to the public daily, free of charge.
