Master Gardener Journal  

Two Citrus Clinics

Not one, but TWO opportunities to get ready for the 2004 citrus planting season by getting answers for growing healthy citrus and other fruit crops in the Valley of the Sun!

The East Valley Citrus Clinic will be held on Saturday, January 24, 2004 at the Greenfield Citrus Nursery, 2588 East Lehi Road in Mesa.

The Northwest Valley Citrus Clinic will be held on Saturday, January 31, 2004 in Waddell at the U of A Citrus Agricultural Center, located North of I-10. Take the Cotton Lane off ramp North to Greenway Road. Take Greenway Road west for about two miles and follow the signs to the University of Arizona Citrus Agricultural Center.

Ticket Prices: $5.00 advance purchase or $8.00 at the gate.

Gates will open at 8:30 a.m. at each event with the clinic running from 9:00 a.m. to noon, followed by a one-hour question-and-answer period from noon to 1:00 p.m.
