I'm back in the Chronicle--One Sunday Each Month--usually early in the month. My column, which appears in the Sunday Food + Home section, includes short Q&A, book reviews, events, new plants and products, and gardening tips. Sometimes I will write blog posts that expand on topics covered in my column. In addition to reading them in the print paper or an online subscription, you can read recent columns by going to sfgate.com and searching for Pam Peirce (spell it right!).
Upcoming Public Events
My next scheduled public event is a talk on February 9th, 2019, 10:30-12;30, at Pollinate Farm and Garden in Oakland. The fee is $35.00. It's titled "Jumpstart Your Bay Area Vegetable Garden with Pam Peirce." I will be focused on the basic needs of vegetable crops and how to provide those needs in a year-round cycle in a Bay Area garden. I will be showing some photos and giving special emphasis to soil preparation, water management, and using starts or seeds. The store sells Golden Gate Gardening. It's at 2727 Fruitvale Avenue, 510-686-3493, pollinatefarm.com.
On March 9, 2019, at 12 noon, I will be giving a free talk at Ploughshares Nursery in Alameda. My topic will be how to get the most from a year-round small-space garden, with special attention to avoiding pests. Ploughshares is located at 2701 Main Street. Their phone number is 510-755-1102 and their web site is poughsharesnursery.com.
Both talks will include tips for gardening in containers, will be useful to both beginners and advanced gardeners, and will allow time for your questions. Golden Gate Gardening will be available at both talks, and I will be happy to sign any purchased by audience members.
Stay tuned for more listings.
