Spring Gardening Workshop with Native Seeds/SEARCH

Posted By on Wed, Feb 27, 2013 at 12:00 PM

Now, I know I am usually going on about food trucks, or beer events, but where our food comes from is also very important to me. Nothing says "I care what I eat" more so that growing your own food. With a little bit of knowledge desert growing here in the Southwest is so easy and fun. To help you learn how, on Saturday, March 2, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., Native Seeds/SEARCH board member and gardener Martha "Muffin" Burgess, of Flor de Mayo Arts, will be instructing a class at the NS/S Conservation Center,
3584 E. River Road. From the Native Seed/SEARCH website:

“Long season melons and gourds, runners and lima beans, heirloom tomatoes and pot herbs are among the vegetables that succeed well in the low desert if planted in early spring. Using our Binghampton floodplain plots at the NS/S Conservation Center, we will learn tricks discovered over many years of gardening in Tucson's unique climate. Prepare to get your hands and shovels dirty—and get primed for prepping your own home garden. Participants will take home new ideas. This workshop is designed especially for newcomers to desert gardening, to help “tune in” to growing in our local conditions. Class size is limited, so sign up today!"

Cost for this class is $25 for NS/S members and $45 for non-members. Non member price includes membership to Native Seed/Search.
