This weekend (Jan. 26-27), a gardening symposium will be held at the San Francisco Botanical Garden at Strybing Arboretum in Golden Gate Park. The main focus is sustainable gardening. There a good lineup of speakers, but, regrettably, the symposium is rather expensive at $134 for day one and $125 for day two (slightly less for members). You do get lunch.

I really must update Tom’s Garden. It’s time to be looking at seed catalogues.
