Tryin’ Out Their Green Thumbs

The Los Peñasquitos Canyon Ranch House recently hosted a garden fair with an assortment of activities and fun for all. The PQ community joined the Ranch House for a full afternoon of free gardening lectures, community garden and historical adobe tours, food, vendors, and entertainment. Gardening lectures covered topics such as composting, fruit tree care, permaculture, goat and chicken care, vegetable gardening, and more. Attendees learned about the types of vegetables and fruit suitable to grow during particular seasons as well as the importance of local, community gardens. The educational and interactive event encouraged PQ residents to put on their gardening gloves and try out their green thumb for the upcoming months ahead. Even those new to gardening left feeling inspired.
