Dates for spring 101 classes

We had a great series of classes this winter, and have now confirmed that we'll be doing another series of four 101 classes this spring in the City of Santa Barbara- they will all be held at the Franklin Community Center, 1136 E Montecito St Santa Barbara, CA, 93103. The classes we'll offer will be:

Water Wise Site Assessment 101 on Monday, April 30, from 7-8:30 PM

Rainwater Harvesting 101, on Monday, May 7, from 7-8:30 PM

If you have come to a Sweetwater class once, you may want to attend again and refresh your knowledge. You can also share this opportunity with neighbors and friends.

We will continue to offer our 101 classes FREE to recent evacuees.  Classes are actually free for anyone in the community, although we ask for a suggested donation. We will encourage recent evacuees not to donate. Please spread the word.

Online registration for classes is encouraged although not required.

An Alfresco Anapamu Adventure, Sat August 13, 10:00 AM-3:00 PM

 
Help to create a new path for rainwater into a front yard that will become a place of adventure for bees, and butterflies.. This hands-on workshop will be the beginning of the whole landscape transformation into a water wise cottage garden. This workshop is full. you can Register here for the waitlist if you are interested. 
 
We'll redirect rainwater from two downspouts into two mulch basins and create berms, which together will form the foundation of the rain garden to come. The August 13 workshop will focus on the earthworks and downspouts. Later this fall we will have another hands-on workshop to plant the pollinator-friendly native plants. Join us and be part of an outdoor adventure in water wise practices.
