Saturday, July 14  &  Saturday, August 11

10AM to 12PM

Spend time connecting with nature in a garden with Los Angeles gardener, Natalie Iturbe.
The workshop starts with a tour of the facility (Sepulveda Community Garden Center).  It’s a beautiful place with a wide variety of plants and wildlife.
Then the group settles into Natalie’s garden.

You’ll get to know local living herb plants and their uses.
Drink herbal tea
Make herb bundles to take home
Meditate with the plants


It is a delightful escape from the hustle and bustle of LA life, where you can re-connect with nature’s thriving beings.

Wear clothes that will be comfortable for the weather conditions of the day, a hat, close-toed shoes, a beach towel to sit on and water.
You are welcome to bring a picnic lunch to eat in the garden or in the park after the workshop.

If these dates don’t work for you, I also offer additional group workshops through AirBNB Experiences.

☑ Do you live in the Los Angeles area?

☑ If you own your property, pick a sunny area of your yard for us to build the garden.

☑ If you rent your property, make sure you are able to plant the garden per your lease agreement with the landowner.

If everything applies, then you are eligible to purchase a workshop.


I will send you a quick questionnaire so I can get to know your yard, your garden needs and your availability (Fridays & Saturdays only).

You will send me a photo of the area we will plant, and select the kind of garden you would like to build (see the Garden Choices below).

On the gardening day, Natalie will evaluate your selected garden area and observe the effects of the elements. With this information she will decide what layout will work best for your space.

You will build up the health of your soil by learning how to prep it for best growth, and we will cultivate the garden.

By the end of our session,
you’ll know how to take care of your beginner’s garden,
where to get any needed supplies and materials,
and know a plant guru available to answer garden questions!
