Sacramento County Master Gardeners at the Fair Oaks Horticulture Center maintain water-efficient landscape demonstration gardens, fruit trees and bushes, a table grape vineyard, cane berries and blueberries, herbs, a vegetable garden, and a compost demonstration.  

Learn how to select, plant and care for edible and ornamental plants using University of California research-based, river-friendly practices.

We will show you how to grow the best vegetables and fruit, conserve water and energy, nurture plant health to reduce the need for synthetic chemicals, and discover University of California resources available to help you prevent and manage garden pests.

"Ask the Master Gardeners" Plant Clinics are held at all events. Bring your plant samples, pest mysteries and questions. We'll help!

Open Garden Days are the ideal time to walk through at your own pace. Bring your list of gardening questions and get one-on-one advice.
