  • CSG 101 Class & Garden Tour

    February 23, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

    CSG 101 is an orientation class for upcoming gardeners that will give you an overview of the garden, tour and all the information you need to know to start gardening with us. We have individual garden beds as well as group garden beds.

    Meet at the Growing Circle at the garden (433 Charles Street Sunnyvale 94086).

    The talk is typically 60-90 minutes depending on questions and includes a tour of the garden. Late arrivals more than 15 minutes will not get attendance credit.
    This orientation is only offered a few times every year. This is the best time to attend the class so you can start gardening right away.

    This garden is run completely by volunteers. In order to be most respectful of our presenter, we do need to maintain a minimum number of attendees. Please email rsvp if you plan to attend.

    After attending CSG 101 you will be given priority status on the wait list and you will be one step closer to getting your own garden bed or begin gardening with the group gardeners.

    If you have any questions, please direct them to Margherita Lai, Application Coordinator, at waiting_list@charlesstreetgardens.org
