Organic Gardening Class Newsletter #11
you all for listening to my talk last week. I will have more to say about tools, organic methods,
and growing tips in future sessions.
next Sunday March 29. Meet at the Chico State University Farm at 1:30 PM. Field Manager Katie Fugnetti
and Dr. Lee Altier will show us around and talk about the Organic Vegetable Project.
Directions: Take Park Avenue which becomes The Midway heading south toward Durham. Turn
right at Hegan Lane (the stoplight where the cemetery is). After you cross over the RR tracks, the next left is the
University Farm. Go straight until you see a student directing you into a gravel parking lot.
SIGN UP SOON FOR THE NEXT SERIES OF THE ORGANIC GARDENING CLASS. We
have an exciting lineup of speakers and field trips planned, starting with a talk on Tomatoes by Sawmill Creek Farm on April
19. Please see attached schedule and registration form. Save $10
and sign up early. This class may fill up prior to the first session.
Garden Sharing Network: Have land and not enough hands? Have passion and only a patio? Here
is a follow-up call to those who want to co-garden by sharing space and effort. Contact Emily Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org, and she will work with you to find the right combinations of organic gardeners. The seeds are calling louder
each day. Let's play!
