Open Garden days are informal events with Master Gardeners available in all areas of the garden.  It’s a great opportunity to peruse the garden at your own pace and ask lots of questions.

Starting at 10:00 a.m. UCCE Master Gardeners will hold mini-demonstrations on: 

  • Growing sunflowers and succulents at the Water Efficient Landscape Garden.
  • Walking tour on harvesting herbs, gathering seeds, drying herbs and more at the Herb Project Area.
  • A non-chemical method for controlling soil born pests via soil solarization at the Vegetable Project Area.

On-going Demonstrations at the various project areas:

  • Water Efficient Landscape Garden:  The many benefits of mulch.
  • Orchard:  Fruit thinning and summer pruning.
  • Berries:  Blueberry tasting.
  • Vegetables:  Pest management based on the most recent research-based sustainable practices.
  • Vineyard:  Canopy management, shoot, leaf and cluster thinning and how to spray for powdery mildew.
  • Compost:  Turning, sifting, and building the pile for good, healthy compost.

Located outside–rain or shine.
