Crescent Farm Workshop: Water Harvesting on Contour

The Crescent Farm will host an explanation on contour water capture and demonstrate a "bunyip", a simple and easy-to-build tool. The workshop's hands-on activity of the day is learning to create a single contour terrace by pulling back mulch and using the "lasagna mulch" technique over the area. Come to the Arboretum and learn innovative, California-friendly water harvest and gardening techniques from the Crescent Farm! Participants are encouraged to wear closed shoes, sunscreen and hats and gloves. Observers welcome! For more information, visit the Los Angeles County Arboretum Crescent Farm Series.
