Rachel apologizes for the unexpected change in time....LIFE! Join Rachel Whitney at her ranch where blueberry production and harvesting is all done by hand. We’ll look at how blueberries grow and talk about what varieties work in this area; cultivation methods and see how they are stored and packed for market. Blueberries will be available for sale.

Directions: Southbound 101 take the Padaro offramp, cross over the freeway, turn right on Via Real, then left on Lambert (just a few hundred feet, so don’t miss it). About ¾ miles look for the mailbox on the right that says Whitney; turn left there into the driveway and bear right onto the dirt road. You’ll see a rock that says Whitney Ranch. Parking would be anywhere in that field just to the left of the rock. You’ll see the mounds of compost in the same field. You’ll continue walking on the dirt road toward the motorhome and house with the clay tile roof. As you walk you’ll be passing the blueberry field which is netted completely.
If interested in car pooling, meet at Sears upper parking lot at 8:00. I will meet you at the farm. Gerri
