The Asian citrus psyllid (ACP), Diaphorina citri, a tiny, mottled-brown insect about the size of an aphid, poses a serious threat to California’s citrus trees, including those grown in home gardens and on farms. The psyllid feeds on all varieties of citrus and a few very closely related ornamental plants in the family Rutaceae.
Farmers markets provide a variety of fresh-cut, seasonal fruits and vegetables, and other items directly from local Orange County farmers.
This year’s garden Show theme is “The Garden as Art.” The display gardens will represent either an art movement or a specific artist interpreted in a garden.
It's pretty amazing - Orange County Master Gardener volunteers conducted a class with donated supplies, resulting in a fun and healthy experience that will end up feeding hundreds of people.
No one can come close to conducting classes like this for so little cost.
Several people came up to me after the class and shared their gratitude.
