Events Coming Up: FREE Seed Share and Lecture - Two Days - Get Your Growing On!

Dear Folks,

My three-times-a-year FREE Seed Share is next Friday, September 30th, 9 a.m. to Noon

I started this several years ago because I want YOU to get started, or add to, you gardening, growing some or more of your own food in your own backyard (or community garden bed or school garden).  I plan this free event to coincide with the next sowing season here in the Valley of The Sun.

Mesa Farmers Market
20 East Main (NEC of Main and Center)
Parking is available coming in from Pepper Place.  All parking is available on Fridays

You do not need to bring any seeds to come and pick up some.  If you have seed you harvested from edibles or packages of NON-GMO or Organic feel free to contribute, but it is not necessary.

I will be there to answer questions.

FREE Lecture - Saturday, October 1st, 4:30 p.m.

Fall - "Planting Like It Is Spring" in the Desert Garden!  

Many gardeners familiar with growing food in the desert treat fall like Spring for the abundance of varieties to plant and grow successfully.

Fall is the time to plant many of the perennial fruit trees and bushes, perennial herbs such as Rosemary, Oregano, and Thyme and all of the cool weather loving greens, root crops, and peas, along with cool weather loving herbs like dill and cilantro and edible flowers such as nasturtiums, hollyhocks and the pansy family.

Catherine, The Herb Lady will talk transplanting, successive sowing, and how to get the most out of your fall through spring garden.

Mesa Urban Garden (MUG)
NEC of Hibbert and 1st Avenue (south of Main Street)

A local Girl Scout Troop will have some seedlings for sale and free material will be available on a first come-first serve basis.

RENT a bed while you are there!  MUG has two sized beds for rent to get your garden going if you live in an apartment or otherwise do not have a gardening area.  The beds are all set up with great soil and a watering system.  All you need to do is plant!

I hope you can make it to one or both of these events.  The next events will be after New Year's.
