Join the Washington County Master Gardener Association's Speaker Series as Ezequiel Lopez-Reyes, OSU Extension Open Campus & Juntos Coordinator for Washington County, presents: "Hot Peppers! From seed to salsa."

Ezequiel will provide information about the planting and growing process of peppers, and how it relates to Latin culture. He will focus on tips to effectively grow peppers, including the pinching process, when to plant your peppers outdoors, and how to use peppers in the kitchen.

Ezequiel Lopez-Reyes immigrated to the United States as a child alongside his parents from Michoacan, Mexico. He grew up in Cornelius, Oregon, which he still calls home. Ezequiel currently works with Latino families and students in Washington County to help prepare them for life after high school.

His love for gardening was passed down to him by his parents. His father was a farmer in Mexico, while his mother worked for 30 years in a plant nursery. Ezequiel say he has grown almost everything you can think of including peppers, limes, tomatoes, cherries, figs, and peaches.
