  • Vegetable and Herb Gardens: Basics of Tasty and Nutritious Harvests

    Saturday, November 16l 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
    Yvonne Savio, Master Gardener


  • Home grown vegetables are flavorful packets of nutrition, color, aroma, and texture. Growing them at home is a rewarding endeavor when the basic cultural needs are met. Master Gardener Yvonne Savio will guide us along the garden path to successful uear-round veggie & herb cultivation (with an emphasis on cool-season crops) during this 1 1/2 hour class. She will also brin plants grown in her home garden to discuss and then share with attendees.

    In January, Ms. Savio will follow up with an alphabetical compendium of 60 vegetables and herbs that are well-suited for Southern California gardens. Registration for this second class will be announced at a later date.

    In her 20+ years as Master Gardenener Coordinator for the University of California Cooperative Extension in Los Angeles County, Yvonne Savio has shepherded almost 1200 Master Gardeneners through the Master Gardener Program. Having retired in 2015, Yvonne continues to cultivate enlightened gardening through her information-packed website.

  • Registration for the free class is required. Please E-mail to request a space in the class or for more information. Driving and parking instructions, as well as the class meeting location, will be sent upon registration.
