Learn to Build a Nursery (Step 3) [Vista]

Week Three!

Looks like we might have urbanite delivered on Wednesday this week, just in time to help start building out the terracing in the area we've cleared.

Last week, Steve Spangler, owner of Exotica Rare Fruit Nursery,  and Juaquin taught us how to prep seed mix, sow seeds, and how to water effectively. We'll try and get Steve to share more of his expertise and love for plants during our lunch break/tour.

The more people that show up, the easier the work, so bring a friend!


Juaquin is at the nursery every day (mostly) so if Thursdays don't work, please reach out to him at (505)[masked] and he'll be happy to check his schedule and coordinate working together.


Some love from Lorraine:

"This event was fantastic! Master Horticulturist Juaquin was delightful and inspiring. All participants were generous in sharing their knowledge and put their all into the work of clearing the property."

      Yes, there will be one every Thursday for the next few weeks. Each one we'll be tackling a new part of the space and sharing new tips and techniques during the lunch break workshop. :)
