The following are available at discounted rates to City of Los Angeles residents for purchase, while supplies last. Proof of residency such as a state-issued ID with home address or a utility bill will be required. All locations accept checks. Griffith Park accepts credit cards as well. Cash is not accepted.
Compost bins - $20 Worm bins - $20 Wing Diggers (compost aeration tools) - $8 * If you do not have proof of residence within the City of Los Angeles, you will be charged the full price of each item purchased as opposed to the discounted price noted above.
Free mulch and compost are available at all locations. At Griffith Park and Lopez Canyon, bulk mulch and compost will be offered. At Gaffey Nature Center and South LA Wetlands, bagged mulch and compost will be offered. All participants will receive a free garden plant at the end of the workshop. We'll also have special guests joining us from time to time!
Registration via Eventbrite is a requirement for each participant. All registered City of Los Angeles residents who attend the workshop will be entered into a drawing to win a FREE rain barrel! Please note that if you have received a rain barrel from the City of Los Angeles in the past 12 months, you are not eligible for the drawing. Please note that City staff, contractors, and vendors may register to attend but will not be entered into the drawing.

The videos are never as exciting as being live at a class, but we wanted to offer an alternative to help the public learn more about composting and gardening while we were unable to meet in person.
