Seed Saving Workshop
with Oscar Carmona
at Mesa Harmony Garden
Saturday, February 23, 3-5 PM
Located in the heart of the Mesa in beautiful Santa Barbara, the Mesa Harmony Garden is on the corner of
Meigs Road and Dolores Drive.
From the 101 Freeway:
Take the Carillo Street Exit and head toward the ocean. Carillo Street turns into Meigs Road. Head up
and over the hill and turn left on Dolores Drive. Park along the street, the garden is on the corner.
This is the first in a series of hands-on workshops focusing on easy to produce seed stock in
a home or community garden setting. We will be planting open pollinated lettuce varieties
well suited to the cooler ocean influenced micro-climate of the Mesa area. Participants will
have a chance to prep beds, plant seedlings and discuss our plan for managing this crop.
Once mature, seeds will be harvested and shared with the Foodbank, Mesa Harmony, and
Guild and workshop participants. This workshop is free of charge and open to entire
community! LETS GET GROWING!!!!!
