Workshops and other events

Master Gardeners hold a number of different events where we educate the public, usually for free. The links below take you to current offerings.

FOHC Workshops/Open Gardens

Fair Oaks Horticulture Center workshops and open gardens - Free!

A Workshop at the Fair Oaks Horticulture Center (FOHC) includes speakers giving talks on specific topics, like our pruning workshop in January.

Another FOHC event, Open Garden, is a chance for you to visit the gardens, roam around freely and talk with Master Gardeners there to help with your gardening questions. We often include mini-tours and demonstrations at Open Gardens.

Harvest Day is also included on our FOHC Workshop schedule. Lots of speakers, fruit tasting, vendors, education tables and so much more. This event is the first Saturday in August.

Diagnostic Clinic

Plant diagnostic clinics - Free!

Plant Clinics are offered throughout Sacramento County.  You can get a plant problem solved one-on-one with a Master Gardener. Plant Clinics are held at all of the FOHC events and are also part of bigger events such as the California State Fair and Home Shows.

Composting Workshops

Composting workshops - Most are Free!

Composting Workshops are given all over Sacramento County, often at public libraries. Some Composting Workshops involve a small fee for materials. See the schedule for details.

Special Events

Special events

Special Events are simply that--occasional special offerings like the succulent pumpkins workshop held in October, 2016.  We charge a small fee for these, but you learn and take things home with you!
