Join us for an informative and inspiring talk with Alameda County Master Gardener Birgitt Evans as she discusses the three pilllars of the summer garden:
Earth: All good things in the garden grow from the earth, so the lull between planting and harvesting is an excellent time to build your soil tilth and fertility.Water: In a summer-dry climate, good, consistant watering is is crutial to healthy plant growth and a number of easy irrigation systems can simplify the process.Plants: With our long growing season, there are many warm season crops that can still be planted into July. And June is also time to begin planning for the fall garden.
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.
