September 2017 Chapter Meeting

WHEN: Saturday, September 9, 2017
WHAT: Ohlone Greenway Tree Planting Project and More

WHO: Barath Raghavan and Bruce Lavin

WHERE:

Albany Senior Center, 846 Masonic Avenue, Albany CA

TIME:

12 Noon - 4 PM (set up and potluck at noon, clean up and depart by 4 PM)

INFO:

There will be a tour of the Ohlone Greenway Tree Planting Project after the plant drawing. The project is both for the public and for CRFG: the hope is that this collection will eventually be complementary to the Prusch Park orchard in San Jose as it will contain a distinct set of species / cultivars (with an emphasis on subtropicals that do not survive the winter in San Jose).

Bruce will be speaking on has worked for him, failed ,etc. He'll have fruit pictures from various botanical gardens and some of the thinks he is growing.

Albany is also home to the Gill Tract Farm (farm stand open on Sundays), the permaculture food forest at Memorial Park, and a small installation by Planting Justice at St. Alban’s church, Washington and Curtis.
