This is done in a different way than previous scioning/grafting events and unlike other Orange County chapters in the past. The event encourages you to bring in anything garden-related, from cuttings to seeds to unwanted pots, books, and tools. As for the missing items, please keep them to a minimum so that others can get something too.
We provide 5 pots of 2.75 gallons per person. In one of them he fills with quality potting soil consisting of sandy loam, peat moss, pumice and humus. Do not use more than one pot of soil as quantities are limited and should be available to everyone.
We also offer white food grade buckets with lids in sizes 2 to 3 gallons. Limited to 1 per group.
I have some seed packets to distribute.
