Tomorrow is jam packed with classes. Take your pick. I’m going to be at David King’s workshop “What To Do And When To Do It” at The Learning Garden (This class is $25 with a discount if you buy a series of five classes). He’ll be going over everything you need to do plan your summer garden. On the East Side, Solano Community Garden is having a fundraiser garden sale starting at 8:30 AM. Also, there are two free Fruit Tree Pruning Workshops: one in Westchester put on by The Environmental Change Makers, and other other in Highland Park at the Milagro Allegro Garden.
I don’t think anything says Valentine’s Day like “mold.” That’s why on Sunday Joshua and I will be at The Wild Mushroom Festival at the LA Arboretum. We even got tickets to see the Paul Stamets lecture “How Mushrooms Can Save The Planet.” He’s not kidding either. Stamets is currently working on a pesticidal fungi that trick insects into eating them, and mushrooms that can break down the neurotoxins used in nerve gas, as well as a new set of new powerful antiviral medicines. If you can’t make the lecture, you can download an MP3 of one of his most recent talks at http://www.bioneers.org which I highly recommend.
