Master Gardeners + Preservers, Sept. 23

We'll be hopping with activity

UC Cooperative Extension LA County Master Gardeners and Master Food Preservers are bringing a bushel full of activities to the Green Tent on September 23rd. 

C'mon down and say hi!! 

In addition to free seasonal seeds, the Master Gardeners have the following plants to give away:
  • Red Russian, "Ragged Jack" and Vates Dwarf Blue kale, 
  • Five Color swiss chard
  • Bloomsdale spinach
  • Baby cabbage 
  • "Pixie" and Super Sugar snap peas
And for the first time they'll bring an interactive kiosk from UC Davis Integrated Pest Management. Using a portable touch-screen computer, you can look up pest management information for over 65 common home and garden pests in both English and Spanish. 

Master Food Preserver and breadmaker extraordinaire, ROSE LAWRENCE of Red Bread in Venice, will be on hand to answer your food preservation questions from 9 to 11 a.m. 

Don't forget: 25 Grow LA Victory Garden classes. Master Gardeners teach these four-week low-cost basic gardening classes throughout the county, with three on the Westside: Samohi starts 9/29; Uni High and Venice Community Garden start on 10/6. Click here for registration information.
