Recycling Household Throwaways Into Garden Tools
Come get ideas for reusing household items in the garden on June 9 (Thursday), 2:30 p.m., in Friends Hall at the Huntington Botanical Gardens, 1151 Oxford Road, San Marino, CA 91108. I'll show slides, bring examples, and discuss how to turn broken and other "useless" items around the house into useful garden tools. A plant sale follows. Print and bring my article with you: http://celosangeles.ucdavis.edu/garden/articles/recycle.html

Clever Gardening Technique
