Moana Nursery September Seminars

September 8:  Preserving Your Harvest –Back by popular demand, join urban farmerCraig Frezzette as he discusses the many ways to preserve the bounty from your garden and shares a few tips for extending the growing season.   Craig is a USDA Certified Organic Producer and owner ofCityGreenGardens. He sells his produce to local restaurants and directly to the public via his subscription garden. Craig has been gardening and canning for more than 20 years inReno. ” Bringing back one of the lost traditions associated with growing food was my main goal when I first started canning, but then I found it to be fun and exciting, and have been canning ever since. Besides being a healthy way to continue eating the goodness from the garden, it makes for excellent gifts.”

September 15:  Extending the Growing Season – While we’re experiencing one of our best growing seasons in recent memory, we still have at least 2 more months left to grow.  Learn what you need to be doing in your garden now to make the most of your efforts: successive plantings, row covers, hoop houses, fall crops, cover crops, planting onion seeds for next year and more.   Join our plant doctor, certified arborist and longtime high desert gardenerLisa Braginton as she shares her knowledge and personal experiences.
