Open gardens are informal events where you roam the gardens, watch what we are doing, see what we are growing and ask questions. Got garden problems?  Bring them to the 'Ask the Master Gardeners' table.

All areas are staffed with Master Gardeners: grapes, herbs, fruit trees, citrus, vegetables, berries, composting, water-efficient landscape gardens.

At 10 AM, watch mini-demonstrations on:

  • Water Efficient Landscapes:  Container gardening.
  • Orchard:  Debugging orchard irrigation.
  • Herbs:  Propagating herbs.
  • Vegetables:  Cutting down and turning in cover crops.


  • Orchard:  Best tools for orchard care.  Why a “Tropicals’ Hut”?  Pollinators.
  • Herbs:  Edible flowers in the garden.
  • Berries:  Testing soil pH, tips for vigorous plants and superior yields.
  • Vegetables:  Vegetable garden pest management.
  • Vineyard:  Pruning young vines:  3-year cane-pruned, 5-year spur pruned.
  • Compost:  Build, turn and harvest compost.  See new ‘Lincoln Log’ compost and worm composting.
