Fall is Harvest Time and the important transition period from warm season gardening to cool season gardening, ask us how to do it! Fall is when you should plant drought tolerant and native plants so that they are independent of water by the following year. Stop by and learn about animals you can keep in urban settings which could benefit your garden and improve your health and the health of your wallet.

The kids will love the chickens, goats and doves.  Refreshments will be on-hand.
