The San Tomas & Monroe Neighborhood Community Garden opened up late August, a little too late to grow the summer plants we all love: Cucumbers, tomatoes, squash , chili peppers and corn. However, the Community Gardeners braved cold temperatures and rainy days and transformed those empty garden beds into lush and leafy green winter gardens: kale, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli and mustard greens. March 15 marks the last chance of frost in Santa Clara county, which opens up a whole new class of vegetables and fruit that can be grown. The Garden Coordinator wants to waste no time! So on Saturday, March 16th the Garden Coordinator would like to invite the public to help him plant new spring vegetables in the Teaching beds from 10am – 2pm. He will be removing old plants, preparing the soil, and then plant spring/summer seeds and seedlings and will talk through every step to all in attendance. Tools and adult sized gloves are available. Please wear sun protection and closed toed shoes.
