Master Gardener Series. Containers are a good option for growing on decks, patios and compact yards. This talk will cover suitable containers, soil, vegetables and herbs for container gardening as well as light, water and fertilizer requirements. General gardening hints and questions & answers at the end. Master Gardener David Blood shares many years of experience gardening in containers great and small. Our presenter, David Blood, has been a Master Gardener since 2001 and was growing a large food garden long before that. In fact, he wooed his wife by carving her name on a pumpkin one summer and presenting it to her in the fall! David is the coordinator of the Lake Merritt Trials Garden and loves to teach people about vegetable gardening.
ABG meetings are held monthly from 6:30 – 7:30 PM on second Tuesdays at Rhythmix Cultural Works (unless otherwise noted). Monthly meetings/workshops are free and open to all residents of Alameda and the surrounding area. Gardeners of all experience levels are welcome!
Monthly meetings are also a great time to drop off fruit and vegetable donations from your garden for the Alameda Food Bank. We deliver members' produce to the food bank the following morning where it is typically distributed to food bank clients within 24 hours.
