Saturday, Sept. 21 from 9 a.m. 12:30 p.m. at the Gutierrez-Hubbell House, 6029 Isleta Blvd. SW, see how saving garden favorites can ensure a more adaptable crop for the future in this informative workshop. Participants will practice harvesting homegrown tomato seeds as well as other commonly saved seeds.
This free workshop will be presented by expert Joshua Cravens of Save New Mexico Seeds and Arid Seed Cache. Register at www.bernco.gov/openspace.
And after the workshop - we need weeders!
We are calling for volunteers to help with general weeding and planting from 1 to 3 p.m. in preparation for the Annual Food Festival & Field Day that will be held Oct. 13.
The Gutierrez-Hubbell House has been under construction due to a newly extended porch and shade structure as part of an Exhibit Master Plan.
Construction is soon wrapping up; however, we need to weed and prepare the area, including demonstration garden, for the annual event.
We will provide gloves, hand tools, refreshments and snacks.
We just need volunteers, including you!
