Gardeners Gather for Food, Fellowship & Education

Alameda Backyard Growers will host its next monthly meeting and discussion from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 10, at Rhythmix Cultural Works, 2513 Blanding Ave.

Members of the community are invited to bring a potluck item or beverage to the informal evening of “garden talk,” and the group says it welcomes gardeners of all levels, including beginners.

Also, Alameda Backyard Gardeners invites guests to bring reuseable cups, plates, utensils and other items to the event.

Members and guests also can bring fruit and vegetable donations from their gardens to be shared with the Alameda Food Bank. ABG delivers members’ produce to the food bank the morning after its meetings, and the items are usually distributed to food-bank clients within 24 hours.

On February 7, the group will host a workshop, Starting from Seeds, with Birgitt Evans (pictured above).
