Veganic Gardening Workshop

February 25, 2018 @ 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

ATTENTION!!!!!!! Due to the cold weather, we are changing the location of the event. The workshop will be held at 1885 Mission St, at Mission and 15th. When you arrive, text or call 415-886-7848 and we will open the door for you.


We’re back with a new series of veganic gardening workshops!

Matt Loisel, long-time veganic gardener and founder of Lazy Millennial Farms, will teach how to start a garden and grow our own food organically, without using the animal inputs commonly used in organics such as manure, blood or bonemeal. Gardening without synthetic or animal fertilizers is the most resource-efficient, sustainable and compassionate way to go about it and easy to boot.

A $12 donation is suggested; nobody is turned away for lack of funds.

Light vegan snacks are provided. Please bring a water bottle to reduce waste.

Please arrive by 1:50 so that the workshops can start promptly at 2pm.

These workshops take place in a garden with very giving plum trees, so expect that the bench you sit on will have some fallen plum juice. We suggest you wear clothes that you do not mind getting dirty and/or bring a newspaper to cover your seat.


At this workshop we will cover:

– Seed Starting: Supplies (Seeds, Trays, Lights, Heating pad, Fertilizer, Seedling Medium) & Sowing seeds
– Understanding Frost Dates
– Preparing soil: Compaction, Soil types, Composting
– Mulching


Gardening in the spaces that are available to us, be it a small plot in a community garden, a rooftop, a balcony or a front yard, is an important step in improving access to healthy foods, beautifying and nurturing our environments, and building community resiliency. Seed the Commons is delighted to support our community by offering gardening workshops three times a year.
