Though I'm posting this in order to announce these great classes. I may not attend each week. If anyone would like to volunteer as a host to greet people from our group, please contact us. All attendees are also welcome to take a moment to ask whether any of our group members are there. That is a great way to meet each other in person and also let new people know about our group.
Note: quality seeds screened for our zone are typically sold at this nursery. Many local stores take whatever vendors send them whether it's good for our zone or not. Their staff tries to stock seeds recommended for our zone 9b. But, always good to double check before planting, as I've found errors. ~ Carole
