On February 19th, 2014, I will be giving a public talk, hosted by the Sonoma County Master Gardeners. I will be speaking on the subject of Getting to Know Five Plant Families. I'll show a slide show and talk about commonalities in the plant families, in appearance as well as in how you grow them, and managing the pests they have in common. The five families I'll be presenting are the rose, mint, daisy, onion (& lily), and celery families. The information will be useful to both food and ornamental gardeners. More information on time and place to follow.
By the way, last year, I presented a talk on five other plant families: tomato, squash, bean, beet, and cabbage. It is available to be presented to other audiences, as will be the February 19th talk after that day.
On June 21, 2014, I will be speaking at the annual educational conference of the Herb Society of America, which is to be held in Concord, CA. Registration for the conference will be required to attend.I will be speaking about less familiar culinary herbs, how to grow and use them. I will post more information about time, location and about the conference in general soon. (Their website is herbsociety.org.)
The Master Gardeners of Alameda County will not be holding their fall gardening seminar in 2014. Instead, they will be switching to a spring event, starting in spring of 2015. I will surely be speaking at that event, and will keep you posted.
