Monsoon Gardening Workshop


Thursday, June 28, 2018
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
NS/S Conservation Center: 3584 E. River Rd. Tucson, AZ 85718
The monsoon season is the traditional time to plant many vegetables in the desert which may also be why it is known to many gardeners as "second spring." This season opens up a wide range of planting possibilities as well as a new range of complications. We will go over which vegetable and herb varieties to plant, protecting your garden from the heat and winds, and maximizing rainwater. This workshop is for the newbie desert gardener as well as the seasoned that may just need a refresher course in monsoon planting. Participants will go home with a variety of monsoon-ready seeds to plant in their own gardens. Class size is limited, so sign up today!
