Add to my calendar

Learn how to get the most from your San Francisco food garden. Drawing on her many years of local gardening experience, Pam Peirce shares information on year-round vegetable garden planning, choosing the best crops and varieties for a small garden, soil preparation, growing edible flowers, attracting beneficial insects, and avoiding many common garden pests. Most recently she highlights the benefits of eating from even a small garden for both our diet and our understanding of our relationship to the land that feeds us. Beginner or experienced gardener, you will find plenty of helpful information here. Useful handouts, including one on growing food plants in containers, will be available. A book sale & signing follows the presentation.

Pam Peirce is an acclaimed San Francisco-based gardener, author, photographer, and lecturer. Her popular  regional gardening book, Golden Gate Gardening, in an expanded third edition, includes planting calendars covering microclimates from the foggy coast inland as far as Walnut Creek or San Jose.

Pam taught horticulture at City College of San Francisco for nearly 30 years and her garden column appears monthly in the San Francisco Chronicle Sunday Food & Wine Section. She blogs at GoldenGateGarden.typepad.com.

This is a Green Stacks event sponsored by the San Francisco Department of the Environment.
