Master Gardeners Return this Sunday November 27th

The UCCE LA County Master Gardeners are back with seeds, seedlings and advice to give away at the Market on Sunday 10/23

Nov. 27 is the 4th Sunday of the month(*) and that means The UCCE LA County Master Gardeners will be on hand to deliver you some healthy greens for the holidays -- micro greens, arugula and some herbs to enhance your post-Thanksgiving table. Plus: ask us what you can do in Winter to keep your garden productive!
(*) No booth in December - the 4th Sunday is Christmas Day -- so this is your last chance till the 4th Sunday in January for free seeds and seedlings !!

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. We are thrilled to have them as our guest at the booth on the 4th Sunday of every month! 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. This is a wonderful program - you may even want to explore signing up for the Master Gardener volunteer training program!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
