Program: The Tony Stewart Memorial Tree Symposium at Sylmar High School
Panel of Experts: Steve List of Sylmar High School, Dan Nelson of La Verne Nursery in Piru, Elliott Kuhn of Cottonwood Urban Farm.
Moderator: Jim Schopper
We will be joining the Los Angeles Chapter for what we hope will be an annual event.
There will be tours of Sylmar High School’s agricultural gardens and hothouse, followed by a Fruit Tree Symposium. The event will conclude with a tree auction, with plants provided by the school and by local nurseries.
The Symposium will include a panel of three experts in unique fields of interest to answer your gardening questions: Steve List, head of the Sylmar High School Agriculture Department and leader of the Urban Gardening Workshop; Dan Nelson, Director of Operations at La Verne Nursery in Piru; and Elliott Kuhn, educator and owner/cultivator of Cottonwood Urban Farm in Panorama City. Questions will be moderated by Jim Schopper, member of the LA Chapter.
A potluck will follow. All members, please bring a dish that serves 8-10 people. Sylmar High School Students studying gardening, planting, and fruit trees will be joining us.
