Upcoming Public Events
On September 12, at 2:30, I will be speaking on growing food through the winter months at the Urban Ag Academy. This free event is open to the public, but you are encouraged to sign up so you can be sure to get to hear the talks you want to hear. You can learn how to sign up at urbanagacademy.eventbright.com. The event will be at the County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park, 11:30-5 PM. There will be tables where you can learn about many aspects of Urban Agriculture, including a booth for the Master Gardener Plant Clinic, followed by 3 sessions of one hour talks. Out of 9 total topics, you can attend 3 of them. At 3:30, a plenary speech will be given by Novella Carpenter, the author of the memoir Farm City. Then, from 4-5 there will be a "Pie Happy Hour." You are encouraged to bring a pie to be judged for prizes, and there will be some provided by a bakery as well.
The above is all free. Then, from 5-9 on September 12, in the same location, 18 Reasons is sponsoring a Barn Dance and Dinner. These evening events will be $40 ($30 for 18 Reasons members) and free for children under 12.
On June 21, 2014, I spoke at the annual educational conference of the Herb Society of America, in Concord HIlton, CA. on the subject of Some Less Familiar Herbs for the Home Garden, how to grow and use them. I will be adding information about some wonderful culinary herbs I discovered to future talks.
Fans of the Master Gardeners of Alameda County Seminar will wonder why I didn't speak there last October. This is because the Alameda MG is switching to a spring event. They expected it to begin in 2015, but say now it may not happen until 2016. I hope to speak at that event, and will keep you posted.
