I run contests every time I send out a newsletter (I know I keep saying that, but some of you haven't gotten the news yet!). Only my newsletter subscribers can enter. In my last installment, a couple of weeks ago, I promised to give away a couple of class tuitions to one of my upcoming gardening (and chicken) classes. The winners get to pick which class they want to come to. Click here if you want to subscribe to my free newsletter and get in on these contests. Click here if you want to see a list of my classes.
The winner of a full class tuition goes to Annette T. of San Jose, who wanted to win a seat in my chicken class. Congrats, Annette! You'll be receiving three chicks, a starter brooder kit, and two hours of learning how to care for these babies, with the end result being fresh eggs for you and your family!
The winner of a buddy seat tuition to a class in which they've enrolled, is Diana C. of Santa Cruz. Diana greatly increased her chances of winning the buddy seat because she enrolled in four of my classes. She gets to bring a friend for free to any one of those classes.
My next class, Grow the Earliest Tomatoes, is this coming Saturday, February 2, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. here at the farm in Ben Lomond. I'll be showing folks how to get their tomatoes to fruit a whole month early, with some hard work and perseverance. Class participants get to take home 6 already growing plants of my proven earliest maturing tomato varieties. There are a few spots left in that class, so email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to enroll. The class costs $30, plus a materials fee of $18.
In the meantime, congratulations to our two winners, and we'll see you soon!
