Sweetwater Collaborative invites you to our

Fox and Lizard Rain Garden Workshop #2, Saturday, July 18, 8:30 am - 1:30 pm 
Free of charge to participants. Snacks, drinks, and tools will be provided.
This is the second of four workshops on Via Zorro (in English-- that means "Fox Way") that will transform both front yards of a duplex, where many lizards live. We're turning two typical lawns into a luscious, colorful landscape that will bring birds, bees, and butterflies into play.  We created water harvesting basins in the first yard in June; then it was sheet mulched. We're ready to do the same for side B of the duplex.  To join us, sign up here.  The B side is the larger yard, with more of a hill as it slopes to the street. The property is located at the end of a cul-de-sac. We'll continue to create lizard habitat as well as places to slow, spread, and sink rainwater diverted from the roof. We'll put in fewer mulch basins during this workshop, as we will be receiving water from a smaller section of roof. Once the plants are added, the birds, bees, and butterflies will begin to show up. Both front yards of the duplex will be planted in the fall right before the rainy season.
This will be a learning through doing workshop, with additional educational points reviewed during the break and lunch.
