Event Description

As the harvest season draws to a close, we celebrate the bounty of another growing season.  But one of the many benefits of our climate is being able to garden year-round!! Fall/Winter is still a great time to grow edibles and improve your landscape. This class will go over a variety of techniques to help the transition to your Fall garden: seed saving, crop rotation, soil amending, cool-weather edible crops, sheet mulching and planting natives. 

Lori Caldwell, aka CompostGal, teaches sustainable gardening classes throughout the Bay Area.  She also provides on-site composting consultation and management for businesses and homeowners interested in sheet mulching/lawn conversion projects.

Participants: To practice techniques of seed saving, please bring seed heads, pods, fruit, etc. to trade with others for a simple seed swap. 

In the interest of diversity, please bring only heirloom and/or open pollinated seed varieties.
