Upcoming Public Events
My next public talk will be at St. Vinnie's Community Garden, at Marin and Ohio Streets in Vallejo, from 1-3:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 14. The topic will be Year-Round Food Gardening. I will cover the planning of the planting year (including the "Secret Season," which is January through March), as well as presenting information on soil prep, pest management and planting to attract beneficial insects. Tickets are $10 in advance, at brownpapertickets.com, or $15 at the door. (Or only $5.00 with St. Vinnie's membership card, available at the event. In case of inclement weather, the talk will take place at The Hub, at 350 Georgia Street.
Stay tuned for public events in early 2016, now in the planning stages.
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.
