Steve will host a Q&A session on gardening this Saturday from 4pm-5pm at the Milagro Community Garden in Santa Fe. He has helped these gardeners all season with tips on watering, growing plants that you want to eat each week and how to plan your garden space. The last session had 12 attendees in May and it lasted an hour. I will also give a tour of the community garden and you can meet other gardeners, including Alice Lee a Master Gardener who is a CSA member and also belongs to the garden. The garden is on Rodeo Road and Legacy Court. Call me at 473-1403 with any questions. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you there.
Saturday, July 18th is a Farm Volunteer Day at Mesa Top Farm. Anne is the main farmer and will lead the group through easy volunteer work for 2 hours. The last volunteer day was in the rain, but we had 5 attendees. We helped Anne clear a row of bind weed, till the soil and she planted rutabagas! This is also a great opportunity to see the farm and take a brief tour. We will have a pot luck lunch after volunteering. Let me know if you want to attend the July 18th day from 9:00 – 12:30. We will carpool from Santa Fe at 9am and start working between 9:30am and 10:00am.
