A couple of events coming up please share this with friends and family.
The "why garden" article referenced below is applicable anywhere, not just the desert.
Friday September 27th, from 9 a.m. to Noon
Mesa Community Farmers Market
Center Street, South of University on the East-side grass area
I have been host this event FREE 3 times a year to coincide with best planting time. You do not need seed to participate, but if you want to bring some, make sure it is either seed you harvested from your own garden or is non-GMO.
If it is squash or pumpkin type seeds, bring a couple of table spoons for sharing and roast the rest for your family to snack on :-)
Tuesday, October 1st, 10:30 a.m. to Noon
Smiling Dog Landscaping
From Ground to Table – How to Have a Bountiful Garden with Catherine Crowley Tuesday October 1st from 10:30 a.m. to Noon.
Seasonal transition tips, the basics of soil, sun and water, and why you CAN grow just about everything edible in our desert, year round, if you understand our climate. Cost is $15 and minimum 10 participants for this class to be a go! Register at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 480 288 8749.
