Get your Garden Growing: Planning a Summer Kitchen Garden

Sunday, May 5th, 10 AM to Noon at Alemany Farm

Instructor: Jason Mark and Abby Bell

Interested in planting a summer vegetable garden but not sure what to plant? In this workshop we will learn which crops and varieties do best in the Bay Area climate and when is the ideal planting time for each crop. We’ll discuss planting techniques, basic irrigation needs, and some challenges that can one expect. Participants will get hands on experience with bed preparation and planting. Season-appropriate vegetable starts will be on sale while supplies last.
