Quail Creek is fortunate that George Stone is passionate about gardening and loves working with people of all ages. He has also grown tomatoes as big as a Buick hubcap.

He’ll share his knowledge of community gardening, the history of the Allen J. Ogden Community Garden, a keen wit and more at the Green Valley Gardeners’ seminar on September 12, 2013. The seminar is at Green Valley Recreation’s Desert Hills Social Center. The doors open at 9:00 a.m. for coffee and socializing. Several Pima County Master Gardeners are always on hand to answer questions, identify plants and offer solutions to your gardening problems. Seminars begin at 9:30 a.m. and last approximately an hour. All seminars are open to the public and free of charge.

Founded in 1980, the Green Valley Gardeners is a service club made up of gardeners.

Weekly gardening seminars are held from mid September through November and January through mid April. The Green Valley Gardeners is registered as 501(c)(3) non-profit. For more information visit
