We can't think of a better way to celebrate Earth Day Saturday then by planting your own organic garden. The Ecology Center in San Juan Capistrano is making it easy to enhance or start an organic vegetable garden.
The team has selected the best organic heirloom vegetable and flower varieties that will thrive in SoCal gardens and containers for Saturday’s annual organic seedling sale. The Gardens for Life students and volunteers propagated each seedling in its geodesic dome greenhouse.
Choose from organic heirloom vegetable such as arugula, Debarao tomatoes, Padron peppers, Galactic lettuce, De Milpa tomatillo, Magda zucchini and more. Open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
The Ecology Center is at 32701 Alipaz St. in San Juan Capistrano. 949.443.4223.
