Free Home and Garden Workshops


Tacoma and Pierce County residents are invited to participate in free workshops designed to support healthy, sustainable homes and gardens. 


Advance registration required. Schedule is subject to change.


When registering for workshops, please note the date and time on your calendar. Many workshops fill to capacity. If your plans change, as they often do when you register months in advance, please let us know as workshops often have waiting lists of people who want to attend.


Workshop Already Full?
If a workshop you'd like to take is full, please register for the wait list. You will be notified if there's a cancellation. Some workshops may be repeated if a minimum of ten people are on the wait list.
