Get Zesty! Citrus Workshop for the Home Gardener and Small-Scale Grower
Add some zest to your garden or small-scale orchard! Join us on Saturday, April 26, from 1 - 5 pm for a half-day workshop at the UC Santa Cruz Farm focused on citrus.

The workshop instructors are Orin Martin, manager of UCSC's Alan Chadwick Garden, and Daniel Paduano, owner of Abounding Harvest Mountain Farm. Orin Martin has been teaching and writing about organic gardening for more than 35 years. Daniel Paduano's farm in the Santa Cruz Mountains grows a wide variety of citrus for such local favorites as Penny Ice Creamery, Ristorante Avanti, and The Picnic Basket.

In this lecture and hands-on workshop, participants will learn about the best varieties of citrus (lemons, limes, oranges, tangerines, and more) for the Monterey Bay region; how to select and prepare a planting site; how to plant; and how to irrigate, fertilize, prune, and control pests and diseases in a range of citrus trees.

Workshop Cost:
