Calaveras County 

Did you know the many ways the UCCE Master Gardener Demonstration Garden is used? The UCCE Master Gardener Demonstration Garden of Calaveras County has become a venue for collaboration among local agencies. It is now the site for the only farmers market in the small town of San Andreas and provides fruits and vegetables to clients that have EBT cards. The Demonstration Garden is a sanctioned classroom for the Calaveras High School. High School Students learn at the Demonstration Garden and then in turn share their knowledge with students at elementary schools within the Calaveras Unified School District. One of the largest events of the year titled "Kid's in the Garden" is an event that is the product of collaboration with Calaveras County First 5 and Calaveras County Prevent Child Abuse Council. Stay tune for our 2020 events!

Tuolumne County 

Bring the family out for some good ol' fashioned fun in the garden.

10:00 am to 1:00 pm
Location: Demonstration Garden, 251 S. Barretta Street,Sonora.

The UCCE Tuolumne County Master Gardeners will host a presentation by Mary Campbell of The Garden Company in Sonora at their General Meeting on Tuesday, November 5th, beginning at 5pm at the Senior Center, 540 Greenley Road, Sonora. Her presentation will be on “Propagating Natives.” Mary will guide us through native plant propagation from seeds to hardwood cuttings and pruning native plants. She will demonstrate practical applications and assist those who wish to try their hand at hardwood cuttings. Mary’s philosophy for gardeners is “Garden Where You Are...” by growing plants particularly suited to the foothills of the Sierra Nevada with cold, wet winters, long, hot and dry summers and abundant wildlife who don’t appreciate the aesthetics of a beautiful garden.

The public is welcome to attend the free presentation.
