Master Gardeners, June 28

The UCCE Los Angeles County Master Gardeners return to the Green Tent on Sunday, June 28 from 9 am to 1 pm. As usual they’re bringing many free seedlings and seed packets for you to take home and plant in your own garden.

This month’s seasonal offerings include zucchini, cilantro, mediterranean cucumbers, baby belle snacking peppers, heirloom black cherry tomatoes, classic slenderette green beans (bush beans) - plus a few little kales still remain.

As ever, please remember to bring your empty plastic six-packs so the Master Gardeners can continue to plant more seeds for you.

This month the Master Gardeners also bid farewell to their long-standing program director, Yvonne Savio, who is retiring on June 30. Many of Green Tent visitors have signed up for her Master Gardener community email newsletters. Now she’s starting her own website and you can sign up for her own email newsletter here. It’s a great site, and no one is more knowledgeable than Yvonne. Plus she’ll keep you posted with garden tips and send you info about all sorts of gardening events happening around town.
