Master Gardeners & Preservers this Sunday, July 22

From seed to can...everything you've ever wanted to know

Your zucchini is going like gang-busters. Your tomato plant is looking a little ill. You bought way too many peaches at the Farmers' Market. What can you do?

Come to the Mar Vista Community Council's Green Tent on July 22 and ask an expert. The UCCE LA County Master Gardeners are back...and they're bringing the UCCE/LA County Master Food Preservers with them! 

The Master Gardeners will have FREE summer herb and veggie seeds and seedlings, and advice on how to increase your bounty.

The Master Food Preservers will answer your canning questions. Preservation is many things: canning, pickling, fermenting, freezing, drying and more! These experts can suggest what to do with your excess backyard and farmers market produce.

Our wonderful Master Gardener volunteers complete an intensive training program in all aspects of gardening and are a font of information. The Master Food Preservers complete an intensive training program in the basics of safe and successful food preservation. They both give their time teaching others, especially in low-resource communities.

Stop by to pick up a free seedling and packet of seeds..and chat with some garden and food preservation experts.
