Gardening Workshop Provides Tools to Start a Spring Garden

Redwood City, CA - February 17, 2010 - Redwood City announces a free workshop designed to provide community members with the useful tips, easy techniques, and important tools they’ll need to start (and maintain) a great vegetable garden!

The workshop features a fun and interesting presentation by certified Master Gardener Heather Marano, certified by the volunteer group Master Gardeners of San Mateo and San Francisco Counties. She’ll discuss everything you need to know about getting your garden going.

There’ll also be a presentation by Susan Stansbury of Conexions, a local non-profit that promotes community gardens and sustainability. Susan will continue on the gardening theme, including ideas about how to share your harvest on a community basis.

Redwood City’s new Garden Support Webpage will also be unveiled, and participants can enter free drawings for fun, gardening-related prizes. There will be information and resources for people to take home, so that they are fully prepared to start their vegetable garden.

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010
7 - 8:30 pm
City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road, Redwood City

Participants will meet and form connections with other community members who are also enthusiastic about starting gardens – it will be the beginning of an invaluable support network as people proceed with their gardening processes. Then, when they get underway with their gardens they can share information, issues, and solutions to problems.

Any interested member of the Redwood City community – whether they have a green thumb or not – is invited to join in this free workshop to help get their garden started for spring. The workshop is presented by Redwood City Verde and the Redwood City Neighborhood Liaison Program. For more information call Beth Ross at 780-5917.
