Join us for an online class... Fire-wise Landscaping
There are many advantages to living in or near a forested area of the foothills. However, these environments require care and maintenance to stay healthy and fire safe. The UCCE Master Gardeners of Amador County will be offering a free Public Education class, "Fire-wise Landscaping" on Saturday, June 6, 2020. This class will focus on how best to maintain and keep healthy the forested landscape to improve fire safety around our homes, from natural vegetation to compatible plantings and appropriate fire-resistant landscaping. The class will include a brief update on the effects of drought and bark beetles and how to reduce future tree mortality; reforestation do's and don’ts; information on when and how to water different plantings effectively; the importance of thinning overcrowded vegetation; removing slash and maintaining defensible space; and planting the right tree in the right place.

Share your veggie, fruit & herb gardens, photos, progress, trials, and successes with others as we share information, resources and our own gardens.
Connect with other local gardeners, be less isolated and go outdoors and be productive in these trying times.
Our main push as UCCE Master Gardeners is to share gardening information to the home gardeners of our communities. Help us accomplish our goal by using this group to connect and share with others in your area.
