The QNF employee garden has recently become a joint project of QNF and the Plumas-Sierra Master Gardeners. A demonstration garden for smaller urban lots, the garden includes a number of raised beds in boxes in which crops can be rotated from year to year to accommodate vegetables, flowers or herbs. The next stop will be in Meadow Valley at Snowski Garden. Parking will be at the Meadow Valley Market across the street. A shuttle to the hillside garden will be provided. This garden demonstrates two east-facing terraced plots and one south-faCing bed. Raised beds from local compost or manure piles are utilized with landscaping to keep ladder fuels to a minimum. Participants will learn about pop-up planting techniques, pros and cons of using soaker hoses, using a building to protect plants, landscaping for privacy and general vegetable growing at an elevation of 4,000 feet. If the tomatoes are still on the vine, the hosts will offer homemade salsa and chips after participants enjoy the tour. After lunch, the tour will return to Quincy to visit Alan Morrison's garden, nestled in a pine forest on a sloping rural lot. The soil has been intensively improved for 20 years and is currently a terraced egetable garden. The site demonstrates landscaping on a firesafe hillside, soil building, composting, fall plantings for late harvest, various techniques for season extension and taking advantage of a warmer microclimate. The tour concludes at 3p.m. To reserve a place on the tour, call 283-6572 by Sept. 25, and leave a message. Space is limited. Tour organizers encourage carpooling.
