And how do they fund all this great work? Every year, Friends of Master Gardeners has a Spring Garden Market in San Jose. They sell a huge variety of heirloom pepper and tomato seedlings, as well as a ton of other veggie and flower seedlings. If you live in the area save the date – 2nd April, History San Jose. I will be posting reminders…
One of the things I love that I love about gardening is the people I meet. Master Gardeners puts a great emphasis on building community. Last year four of us met at a Master Gardeners library course on vegetable gardening. We formed our own little club and have become good friends. Now we meet regularly to swap seedlings, drink wine, plant seeds together, eat nice things, and just last week, we went on our first field trip to Hakone Japanese Gardens in Saratoga.
I hope you enjoyed the photos of the Japanese gardens, and I’ll bet you were wondering what on earth they had to do with what was written. Just like in the garden – everything IS connected!

I have to find out where they offer Master Gardener classes near us. Wow, that japanese garden is just gorgeous!
Hakone is one of my favorite regional gardens. It's been ages since I visited, so thank you for sharing the serene atmosphere via your post.
There's nothing as wonderful as getting together with gardening buddies. I miss my small group from Chicago.
What a great field trip. And yes, I can attest to the Master Gardeners expertise. I usually call them or leave a comment on their website if I need help and the advice has always been good.
