Spring Gardening with Native Seeds/SEARCH Heirloom Veggies and other Tucson favorites
A Hands-on Workshop

Saturday, March 2, 2013
9 am - 11 am

Long season melons and gourds, runners and lima beans, heirloom tomatoes and pot herbs are among the vegetables that succeed well in the low desert if planted in early spring. Using our Binghampton floodplain plots at the NS/S Conservation Center, we will learn tricks discovered over many years of gardening in Tucson's unique climate. Prepare to get your hands and shovels dirty—and get primed for prepping your own home garden. Participants will take home new ideas as well as a sampling of seasonally appropriate seeds for getting started.

Instructing this class will be NS/S board member and gardener Martha "Muffin" Burgess of Flor de Mayo Arts.

This workshop is designed especially for newcomers to desert gardening, to help “tune in” to growing in our local conditions. Class size is limited, so sign up today!

$25 for NS/S members
$45 for non-members (price includes NS/S membership)
