The TPRFG team invites the community to share their experience, questions, and ideas. Together, we can help our gardens thrive using organic and sustainable materials to produce healthy fruits, vegetables, nuts and beauty. We invite guest speakers to share techniques on soil building, pruning, plant selection, composting, water conservation, non-chemical pest management and other relevant topics for garden improvement.
Go to the section on Resources for location and contact information for many excellent sources on better gardening. Several great local resources are SLO Master Gardeners, SLO Seed Savers Exchange, One Cool Earth and the California Rare Fruit Growers.
Support us by volunteering your time working in the garden, attending events and with your generous donations to insure this garden will prosper for years to come.
