Open gardens are informal events where you roam the gardens, watch what we are doing, see what we are growing and ask questions. Bring samples of your problem plants, mystery pests and questions to the “Ask the Master Gardeners” information table.  Get one-on-one advice based on the most recent research-based sustainable practices.

Experience the change of seasons at the October Open Garden.  Get ideas for fall plantings that will feed birds and bees, and find out how to make the most of your cool season crops.  Master Gardeners will be available in all areas of the garden:  

  • Vegetables:  cultivating cool season crops and winter cover crops

  • Compost:  what to do with all those fall leaves 
  • Vineyard:  turn grapes to raisins 
  • Herbs:  harvesting culinary herbs for savory fall dishes 
  • Water Efficient Landscape Gardens:  fall flowers, showcasing Autumn sages
