Monsoon Vegetable Gardening

While it might feel impossible to create a successful vegetable garden during harsh Tucson summers, gardeners can still grow food during our monsoon season beginning in July. The additional moisture, warm temperatures and humid air create ideal conditions for planting summer vegetables. Join award-winning landscape designer, owner of REALM and certified arborist, Jason Isenberg, who will guide you through the steps of planting seasonally- appropriate crops, helping them flourish with organic methods, and harvesting the fruits of your labor.
