Laundry-to-Landscape Graywater Workshops
Looking for more ways to save water? The SFPUC is partnering with The Urban Farmer Store to provide free workshops on how to install a laundry-to-landscape graywater system for your home. Sign up for a graywater workshop by clicking here. Due to limited space, priority will be given to approved Laundry-to-Landscape Graywater Program applicants.

Visit the Water-Wise and Natural Plant Care Demonstration Gardens.
Our agency sponsors two demonstration gardens in partnership with Garden for the Environment. The Water-Wise Demonstration Garden features low-water use and climate appropriate plants, efficient irrigation and conservation-friendly design. The Natural Plant Care Demonstration Garden features examples of best practices such as composting, planting the right plants in the right place, attracting beneficial bugs, using less-toxic products and methods, and planting native and climate appropriate plants. These Demonstration Gardens are open to the public and are located at 7th Avenue and Lawton Street in San Francisco.
