Master Gardener Demonstration/Learning Garden Project


March 19, 2010

The partners plots are reserved and the rest have been rented out. Francis Silva (Parks and Rec. project coordinator) is out of the office this week - but expect more news and action the last week in March.

Tomorrow there is scheduled to be an article about Gomez Community Garden in the Sun News - check it out!

The Cool Season Edible Workshop has been posponed (we missed the early planting dates) and the Tomato/Pepper Workshop tentatively scheduled for April 14th. (that date is subject to change)
