In November 2021 Watsonville Wetlands Watch and the City of Watsonville worked with Heidi from the Loma Vista Community Garden to organize a Fruit Tree Care and Composting Workshop for the community garden members. 19 Fruit trees were givien away including figs, limes, lemons, guavas, and loquats. Some members took trees home and 10 were planted in the community garden space for everyone to share. This is the first workshop that was held at a community garden and WWW hopes to work with other community gardens in the future to increase the ammount of organic fruit available to Watsonville residents.
