Don’t miss Kim Curiel’s class this Saturday at the Garden.
August 4 3 – 5pm California Edibles and What Native Americans Ate
Join Kim Curiel, Burton Valley’s incredibly creative and entertaining teacher, as she takes us back in time. We’ll not only learn which native plants are edible, she’ll also teach us how to prepare and enjoy these plants that Native Americans and early settlers depended on. Bring your curiosity and appetite!
Diane and Fred Wilt have volunteered to collect and organize some recipes using produce from our garden. If you wish, in the days to come please think about a recipe (simple is good) that you like which features veggies we’re hoping to harvest from our garden. We’ll be in touch soon to solicit your suggestions, and we’ll organize and compile them for our collective use.
We have established new hours for member work days at the Garden. By the way, if you are not a member, these are good times to come see the garden.
- Tuesday, 3 – 8,
- Thursday 9 – 11
- Saturday, 8 – 2
Lafayette Community Garden and Outdoor Learning Center’s second class of the season is this Saturday. You can sign up here.
Join Susanne Frey, landscape designer and gardener extraordinaire, as she teaches us how to recognize the insects in our gardens – those that promote health and those that wreak havoc. We’ll discuss the benefits of both and how to minimize the negative impact of the so-called “bad guys”. We’ll even learn a bit about insecticides.
If you have not been by the garden lately, check out the photos below. It seems that our very first crop is coming in!
