The City of San Juan Capistrano will hold a free California-friendly landscaping class Friday, Nov. 21 at 9 a.m. at the San Juan Capistrano Community Center, 25925 Camino del Avion.

The class has been developed for new residential gardeners and those who want to take a fresh look at their old landscapes and include information making their garden California friendly, including information on rethinking elements of the site,”right plant, right place,” managing irrigation, using rainwater as a resource, building a living soil sponge and using a holistic approach to gardening.

The class is free, but limited to the first 25 people who register via Community Services. A waiting list to fill the seats of any cancellations will be created and there may be a second class this winter if there is sufficient interest.
