Did you miss the November 2021 general meeting on Zoom with Farmer Roy?


Farmer Roy is the SDHS board member in charge of School Garden Grants and Scholarships. He has decades of vegetable gardening experience in our region which he shared during the November Zoom meeting that was broadcast directly from the greenhouse at his work where he is the lead horticulturist for Cadence at Poway Gardens.
