Saturday August 10, 3pm 1624 Brookes Ave, San Diego, CA 92103
Join us as we partner with Good Neighbor Gardens for a fun and educational event. Good Neighbor Gardens will be showing us one of their local gardens and hopefully inspiring everybody to build one of their own!
Everyone come dig in the dirt as Walt, our grateful gardener, guides us through an interactive soil composition workshop. Learn how to organically enrich your native land, using natural amendments. He’ll give a big shout out to the real farmers, those wiggly worms who never stop working even when we’re fast asleep. We will scavenger hunt for beneficial bugs and talk about what they offer. We’ll also learn what excites the three sisters – corn, beans and squash. It’ll be a fun time diggin in the dirt at one of our urban sharecrop garden plots. It’s a potluck, so bring a dish to share.
What to bring: Food to share for the potluck, Garden Gloves, magnifying glass only if you have them, otherwise just bring your enthusiasm and curiosity
