A couple of us interested gardeners are putting together a casual meetup in Orange County next weekend. On Saturday, June 13th from noon to 2:30 we'll mingle, have a swap table (bring your extras), hear a talk by permaculturist Evan Marks on organic soil building techniques, probably have a seed ball workshop for kids hosted by Earthroots Field School, hear about CSAs from South Coast Farms, and more. It will be held at the new, very worthy Ecology Center in San Juan Capistrano that occupies an renovated historic farm house surrounded by farmland . All are invited, Orange County or not of course. We hope to meet you and your family, share success stories, commiserate over garden tragedies, etc. There will likely be some beverages there, maybe some snacks, but we're not asking for potluck contributes for lunch. Feel free to bring your own lunch though. Should be fun! Please RSVP at www.ocfoodnotlawns.org so we have a head count.
This is not a commercial vendor event. It's for those interested in: local food, stronger neighborhoods, healthy eating, great tasting homegrown produce, kids, building soil, remembering and recreating your grandparents' great vegetable gardens, preserving heirloom vegetables, and responsible and sustainable communities.
