GARDEN: Second Sunday Monthly Garden Share

Special Highlight: Saving Seeds

  • Date: 09/08/2019 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM  
  • Location: Everett N. "Eddie" Souza Park & Community Garden
    2380 Monroe Street
    Santa Clara, California 95051
  • Introduction: Every second Sunday of every month we invite the community to share their garden knowledge and harvests. Each meeting will feature a special focus to go along with everything else.

“I don’t want to share my garden secrets”, said no gardener ever! In fact, many experienced gardeners would agree the best thing about gardening is sharing our harvests, our seedlings, and our knowledge with each other .  Starting in June, every second Sunday, the Eddie Souza Community Garden opens its gates to all novice and experienced gardeners everywhere in a cultural garden exchange. Each month we will highlight a topic to discuss, however all topics (and plants) are on the table! We hope you can bring seeds, seedlings, recipes, garden food, plant cuttings, or even questions to exchange with your neighbors. No one will be turned away for coming empty handed. The time of the exchange will vary due to the weather so please check the Community Garden Webpage for updates!

 Theme of the Month: Seeds, what’s in the garden?

Now go and search what has gone to seed in your garden. That could even be that ripe tomato you love or that zucchini/cucumber that has blown up or your dry beans. Look in the garden and see what you can find, collect it and bring it to share. We will have screens for cleaning our seeds, and try out ways of threshing and winnowing with UCCE Master Gardener Hillie Salo. Bring your favorite tomato and a jar to learn how to save tomato seeds.

 We will tour the garden to see what has gone to seed.
