Hello - and greetings from the Master Garden program from Contra Costa County!
We are hosting a one day event entitled In Our Own Backyard in Brentwood on Saturday, February 8th, 2014, celebrating fresh and sustainable local food. This as an opportunity for educating the non-farm public about the importance of Contra Costa County agriculture while providing an excellent opportunity for exhibitors to have quality contacts with attendees.
The morning features a panel of Brentwood farmers talking about the development of sweet corn as well as the emerging olive oil industry. The afternoon will feature ways to improve soil and some hands-on demonstrations by master gardeners. For more information and to register, please visit
