An Evening w/ Kazi Pitelka – The L.A. Kitchen Garden: Common Questions and Misconceptions
Kazi Pitelka once described herself as joyfully obsessed with growing food in the back yard. That joy has now moved firmly into both her front yard and other people’s yards. Her gardening, cooking, and preserving have been featured in the Los Angeles Times and Pasadena Star News, and on Evan Kleiman’s “Good Food” on KCRW. She gives lectures, leads garden tours and teaches adults and children, including annual visits for Pasadena Waldorf School’s third grade farming curriculum. Kazi has been growing fruit and vegetables in southern California for over 30 years; her last orchard produced 120 different kinds of fruit. Her search for successful varieties and methods for southern California is energized by the satisfaction of watching food grow; the pleasure of combining colors, textures, and flavors in the kitchen; and the enjoyment of amazing tastes from food that is vibrantly fresh from the garden.
In this presentation “Common Questions and Misconceptions” Kazi will focus on 3 garden topics that surface most frequently in conversations about growing food: Care of the Soil, Hybrid and Heirloom, and Fruit Trees.
