PACIFIC PALISADES GARDEN CLUB
Yvonne Savio, Master Gardener
"Unusual Fruits and Vegetables"
Born and raised in Pasadena, Yvonne appreciates the wonderful weather southern California offers for gardening, especially the ability to grown ones own fruits and vegetables. At the University of California Davis, she worked in the Botany and Vegetable Crops Cooperative growing vegetables and wrote gardening columns for local newspapers and journals. In 1994, Yvonne relocated back to southern California and began working with the California Cooperative Extension. She oversees the Master gardener Program as well as a community gardens program called Common Ground. Her talk will focus on varieties of unusual fruits and vegetables and growing them in southern California.
The Pacific Palisades Garden Club, a nonprofit organization founded in 1944, attracts people living in the Westside communities of the Los Angeles area who enjoy gardening and also like spending time with other gardeners. Its large membership enables it to offer numerous activities unavailable to smaller garden groups.
The Club's sociable monthly meetings, open free to the public, feature speakers who present informative programs on a wide variety of garden-connected topics. Its members are regularly invited to visit local private gardens, and twice a year they can take special daylong tours via chartered bus to prominent public garden sites, garden shows, and special nurseries in outlying areas.
PPGC's Spring Garden Tour is a popular event, and the income it generates helps this charitable organization to support worthy local educational, beautification, and conservation efforts involved in some way with the plant kingdom.
