Join Rachel Brinkerhoff, co-owner of Dog Island Farm/Grow a Pear Nursery, for her live presentation on seasonal planting for raised beds and the benefits of no-till gardening.

We’ll be discussing raised beds, their benefits, their challenges, and how to use them effectively to grow food year round. Learn what you can plant in September in your Solano County garden (zones 9a and 9b). We’ll also talk about why we should all take advantage of no-till gardening even if you have difficult soil.

At the end there will be a 30-minute Q & A with Rachel!

Rachel is a California licensed landscape architect with over 20 years of professional experience and is a Rescape (formally known as Bay Friendly) Qualified Professional. She has been vegetable gardening for over 35 years and along with her husband runs Dog Island Farm, established in 2008. They also own Grow a Pear Nursery in Vallejo and have been providing the community with locally grown plant starts since 2013 (originally through Dog Island Farm).
