Have more questions? We'll come to visit!
The Gardeners Exchange of SaddleBrooke Ranch in conjunction with the
Ranch Master Gardeners welcome you to attend "Growing Roses in the Sonoran Desert,"
Deborah North on Thursday,
Jan. 17 at 1 pm, West Ballroom of Mountainview in SaddleBrooke.
A native of Arizona, Deborah North was under the delusion that she was a good gardener during the 25-years she lived and worked in the Silicon Valley. Returning to Arizona in 2003 she rapidly learned that to enjoy gardening in Tucson required significant re-training. She entered the Master Gardener program in 2004. In the ensuing years the desire to grow things, to learn about best-practices, and to teach others how to garden has developed into a passionate endeavor. She is committed to teaching people how to grow sustainably using organic methods in the Sonoran Desert.
No registration needed. Open seating. For more information, please contact Zann Wilson at 219-263-3261 or email@example.com .
