Master Gardeners this Sunday February 26th!
Spring is Coming-Time To Get Going In Your Garden!
Master Gardeners are back to help you get your garden in shape for Spring.
Looking for free advice about gardening?
Information on what to plant this time of year?
Or just wanting to pick up a starter plant or seeds for your garden?
The UCCE LA County Master Gardeners are back with free seeds, seedlings and advice to give away at the Market on Sunday February 26th.
While you're there, ask them about the award winning Seed Library of Los Angeles - see this article in the LA Times!
Since 1978, UC Cooperative Extension's Common Ground Program has made gardening possible for many Los Angeles County residents, particularly low-income and traditionally underrepresented families. The program goals are to improve nutrition; increase access to fresh, low-cost produce; offer gardening education; build bridges between neighbors and communities; help create employment opportunities; and encourage a cleaner, greener Los Angeles.
Families learn how to garden, grow their own food and prepare it in a healthful manner. In addition, the program trains community volunteers and Master Gardeners, who in turn, volunteer their time to community and school gardens.
