September 29   3 – 5pm   Winter Gardens
There is as much happening in your garden over winter as there is in summer…even if you don’t plant anything. Did you know tomato horn worm grubs could be hibernating in your soil? Or that you may be promoting the growth of various wilts by composting your tomato plants? Join Nanette Heffernan in a lively discussion on how to prepare your garden for winter to ensure you have a healthy spring. We will also be discussing winter edibles that do well in Contra Costa County: Swiss Chard, Broccoli, Collard Greens…the list goes on and on. You will even take home some seedlings to plant!
