Working for Good, Clean, Fair Food for All - Slow Food Urban San Diego Convivium of Slow Food International

Plant it, Grow it, Eat It workshop at Seeds@City

Digging forks and bow rakes in hand, several aspiring gardeners took to the dirt this past Saturday morning to participate in some farming magic. As the sun rose over downtown San Diego, Paul Maschka, faculty member and one of the founders of Seeds@City Urban Farm, led the group through the steps of transforming a weed strewn patch into a compost-rich vegetable bed. Participants learned about the various crops and the best time and places to plant them, how to amend the soil with compost and organic fertilizer, techniques to “build” the bed with forks and rakes, and how to plant a bed with seeds and starts.

The next workshop is Habitat Gardening: creating an abundant food forest on August 11th if you would like to get your hands dirty too!
