Spring Garden Workshop Slated


Alameda Backyard Growers invites the community to a spring-garden planning workshop with Alison Limoges (aove, right), Alameda County Master Gardener, and Marla Koss (above, left).

The discussion is set to take place from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, March 10, at Rhythmix Cultural Works, 2513 Blanding Ave.

Koss and Limoges will share their experience and expertise in garden planning and planting.

Koss has successfully produced fruits and vegetables in Alameda dirt for over 30 years. She also has been taking on practices of companion planting (clustering plants that work well together and separating those that don’t), which has improved her garden’s health.

Limonges is an Alameda County Master Gardener and supervises the garden program at Mastick Senior Center in town.

Future group meetings include: water-wise irrigation with Chad Martens of Irrigation Equipment Co. (April 14), and planning and planting a summer garden with Ann Naffziger, Alameda County Master Gardener (May 12).
