The City of Menlo Park and the Bay Area Water Supply and Conservation Agency (BAWSCA) are co-sponsoring a free water efficient landscaping class in Menlo Park on Saturday, September 24, from 9:00 am to noon. The class topic is “Sustainable Gardening,” which will focus on water-use efficiency in the landscape, how to create healthy soil, and the benefits of using California native plants.
