Food Gardening in a Drought Year

Food Gardening Specialists are presenting a free Spring Food Gardening in a Drought Year Workshop.

Saturday, April 12, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.

Stony Point Community Garden located at 2150 Giffen Avenue, Santa Rosa, off of Stony Point Road, one mile south of highway 12. The workshop is an A to Z approach to food gardening: garden location, options for planting beds, soil components and amendments, compost and fertilizers, working the soil, crop selection and planning, irrigation, garden maintenance, pest control and harvesting. Helpful handouts include how to food garden with less water, drought-tolerant crops and varieties, planting dates for spring crops, a sample garden layout and suggested vegetable varieties for Sonoma County. Pre-registration is NOT required. Rain (indoors) or shine (in the garden)!

Food Gardening Specialists are Sonoma County Master Gardeners who have additional training and, typically, personal experience in food gardening. In addition to spring and fall workshops, they consult with and provide advice to community gardens, church and school gardens, and other neighborhood groups. The specialists are volunteers and do not charge for their services. For more information, email them at [masked].

    I may have to cancel. My agency is tabling the Sebastopol Apple Blossom Festival and all staff must volunteer. I'm unsure just yet of my assignment and on which day. It will either be Sat or Sun. I will update this post when I find out.

    Hi, I'm really gonna try to make this if I can get a lot of my work done also. I'm a landscape designer and I'm doing a veggie bed for a client right now. I'd love to hear any suggestions you have and meet everyone. Thanks for doing it.
