Garden for the Environment: Grow Your Own Food in August
August 13 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
In this in-person workshop, learn to take full advantage of the unique gardening climate in San Francisco, where you can grow your own fruits and vegetables year-round! Join us throughout the seasons for our Grow Your Own Food workshop.
In August, you’ll learn about San Francisco’s late summer / early fall warm period (“second summer”), extending your summer crops, and planning for your winter garden. You’ll also gain knowledge that will help you care for your garden throughout the year. If you have questions, your instructor Carey has answers!
Our expert instructor Carey Craddock is a horticulturalist who has been gardening and teaching others to garden in San Francisco since 1997. Carey will go over everything you need to know about getting a bountiful return on your efforts in your vegetable garden and take you on a full tour of our garden!
