Join popular gardening instructor Martha Davis for a class on Small and Unusual Fruits for Los Alamos.

The class will be held from 7-9 p.m. Tuesday, March 6 at PEEC, 3540 Orange St. The class is $20 or $18 for PEEC members – and advance registration is requested.

Participants in the class will discover small and unusual fruits such as gooseberries, currants, Cornelian cherries, and quinces.

Learn how to grow these in your Los Alamos or White Rock yard, and what to do with them once you’ve grown them.

Davis will share strategies to deal with an unfamiliar fruit, how to cook with one, and will provide recipes to class participants.

Master Gardener Martha Davis teaches about gardening and the interactions between food, genetics, ecology, and gardens at PEEC after many years teaching at Botanic gardens and the Morton Arboretum.
