So Much to Learn - - -

but there are so many opportunities to do just that. Wherever you want to follow your gardening passion, there are fellow gardeners willing to help you along.

My Garden Doctor partner, Dave Etchepare, is hosting an Edible Landscape Fair at Dennis' 7 Dees, on March 6th, at the Eastside location (6025 SE Powell Blvd).

This is a great chance to ask experts those questions you always wondered about or to get help starting something new. Discover knowledgeable folks on food forests, organic vegetable gardening, native edibles, growing food in containers and much more. Children will not be bored – they'll find special activities just for them.

Formal classes will include:
Grow your own Delicious Fruit! With Jim Gilbert
Edible Natives with Metro
Permaculture Class:
Plants that Give You Bang for the Buck(et)
Permaculture Class: Farm Hands without Hands

See the full schedule here.

Check out the bare root edibles – ready to transplant – and the newest blueberry – Pink Lemonade. Can you really have a pink blueberry?

And don’t miss a chance to have your pruner sharpened up (you have been pruning haven’t you?) and your soil acidity checked (it may be time to lime!), thanks to the Portland Rose Society from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.

Look for Dave!
