Event Details

Description: Every gardener asks themselves, “What am I going to grow other than the standard summer tomatoes, peppers and squash?”

Don’t limit your garden beds to summer favorites. Take advantage of our mild weather and plan your garden so you can grow wonderful vegetables 12 months of the year.

In this beginning class, you will learn how to take advantage of whatever space you have by sequencing your planting with the help of a planting calendar for your area. Whether you live on the Peninsula or in San Francisco, you can bring lettuces, greens and many other home-grown treats to your table year round.

Guests will take home an edible seedling ready for their home garden, grown by UC Master Gardeners.

MG Presenter Carol O'Donnell: Carol is a long time resident of San Mateo. She became a Master Gardener Volunteer in 2006. In 2008 she lead a Tomato Trial located two blocks from the ocean on Kelly Avenue in Half Moon Bay. For 15 years, she maintained a plot at Beresford Community Garden. She also gardens at her home and particularly enjoys growing vegetables. Her motto is, “if I can’t eat it, I’m not interested."
