To improve sustainable practices in our neighborhoods for a more livable City, the City of Los Angeles LA Sanitation and LA Department of Water and Power offer classes every second Saturday of the month from 9:00 to 12:00 AM on home Composting and Water Conservation at the Lopez Canyon Educational Center. The Compost Workshops begin at 10:00 AM. We go over how to use your yard trimmings, food waste and shredded paper to make your own feed stock to produce backyard compost. To demonstrate water saving practices our Education Center displays native and drought tolerant plants, a bio-swale, and a raised bed garden. Attendees will be educated on water conservation; drought tolerant and native plant landscaping; and of the different water conservation programs that DWP offers. New compost bins are sold at discount price to LA Residents. We also have available our trade mark TOPGRO Premium Soil Amendment and Mulch in 30lbs bags for sale at $2.00 per bag. All purchases are by check only. We also sell the compost bins and TOPGRO Premium Soil Amendment and Mulch bags on the third Friday of every month from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. The sales will be conducted at the scale house across from the Education Center.
