Urban/Suburban Ecoliteracy Workshop

MACGlogoThe Milagro Allegro Community Garden hosted the largest of our Time For Lunch Eat-ins on Labor Day and is a remarkable example of how community action can transform a neglected urban space into a productive, inspiring site.

As part of its educational work, the Garden is hosting an Urban/Suburban Ecoliteracy Workshop, with bilingual instruction by master gardeners Wendy Talaro and Steve Hernandez. Ecoliteracy is about learning to understand the language of place and is fundamental to greening your home and community while saving money, water, energy, and time. It’s the foundation of all beautiful organic gardens that grow with little or no fertilizer or chemical pesticides and with less maintenance and water than conventional gardens. Learning to be ecoliterate it is easier than you might think!
