We will be there Saturday, June 1 starting around 10 am to do various garden tasks, harvest some veggies and just hanging out. If you want to know if we are going to be there at any time just email anyone before and we’ll let you know.
There will a repeat of the weed/plant identification class by Sarah Schopp as well general construction work (putting up a shade triangle, laying down irrigation tubing, general garden maintenance).
A more formal class will be next weekend, per our normal every-other-week schedule. Tentative topic/s: Compost, Mulch, Fertility, Cover Crops, Plant Maintenance and Watering + (intro to Disease & Pests and Beneficials)
