This summer, the Pueblo Grande Museum is on a mission to prove that it’s not impossible to grow plants in Arizona, though the obscene heat might suggest otherwise. For the month of August, the museum is hosting a brown bag lecture series “Mission Not-So Impossible: Sustainable Desert Gardening and Landscaping,” which aims to give practical guidance for planting and growing in the Sonoran Desert.
On Friday, August 8, Kelly Murray Young, assistant agent of Argoecology, will talk about the basics of successful vegetable gardening, covering topics like planting calendars, soil management, and variety selection.
Catch Young’s hour-long lecture “Earth Friendly Desert Gardening” during your lunch break at noon at 4619 East Washington Street. The talk is free, but you’ll need to bring your own lunch. For more information, visit pueblogrande.com or call 602-495-0901.
Fri., Aug. 1, 12-1 p.m.; Fri., Aug. 8, 12-1 p.m.; Fri., Aug. 15, 12-1 p.m., 2014
