Why Invest in Professional Development?

If you would like to be notified when we add new workshop dates, please join our email list.


Workshops tend to be active through the garden which has some wood chipped, some dirt, and some paved areas. With advance notice, we can make modifications as needed to allow for participation from everyone. There is a 10-minute walk up an inclined dirt road from the parking lot to the Garden Classroom. See walking directions here. If you require more accessible parking we can accommodate you. Please contact us at 831-200-1864.


We understand that plans can change.  Should you wish to cancel your registration, please submit, in writing, your cancellation to [email protected].  Your registration fee will be refunded, less a $50 administrative fee.  Regretfully, we will not be able to refund any fees if cancellation is made within 2 weeks of the workshop date except, of course, in cases of illness or emergency.
