Event Highlights from SAMLARC’s Gardening Workshop

On Saturday, April 14th, SAMLARC hosted a salsa-themed Gardening Workshop at the Lago Santa Margarita Beach Club! Kathie Wickham, a California Certified Nursery Professional and SAMLARC Resident, led participants in creating beautiful and practical salsa gardens!

Each gardener received a pot with appropriate drainage, rich potting soil, and small tomato, cilantro, and onion plants to complete the arrangement. Kathie instructed attendees how to properly care for their gardens using Miracle-Gro’s organic fertilizer and products like Sluggo to eliminate pesky bugs. Kathie also advised that the pots be placed in a location which guarantees 4-6 hours of sunlight per day. Guests were treated to a light breakfast and coffee while participating in the event and enjoyed salsa music to complete the theme!
