Presented by UCCE Master Gardeners of El Dorado County
Wednesdays, September 9, 16, 23, 30 & October 7, 3:00 - 4:30 pm Pacific Time

A warming atmosphere, warming oceans, acidic seas, rising sea levels, and earlier onset of spring are some of the headlines we read today. But, it isn't the first time in Earth's history that it has happened. In the past, Earth experienced five major extinctions. Does what is happening now share anything in common with those events? If so, what can we learn from them? Are we experiencing a sixth major extinction? How will the warming, rising sea levels, and earlier spring affect us as home owners and gardeners? Join us for a five part series as we delve into some answers to those questions and to see how we might learn from the past, and the steps we might, as gardeners, take to ensure a future healthy earth.

Master Gardeners of Calaveras County
Come see us at the CalaverasGrown Farmers Market
Master Gardener Information Booth
Third Thursday of the Month thru October - 4:00 - 6:00 pm

The UCCE Master Gardeners of Calaveras County realize that quite a few of their clientele don’t have internet or computers. They are trying to address those needs by posting flyers titled “How to Contact the Master Gardeners." The flyers list a variety of methods that can be used to contact the Master Gardeners. This flyer has been distributed to our Master Gardener Volunteers and they in turn are going to be posting the flyers locally.

The UCCE Master Gardeners of Calaveras County are hosting a CalaverasGrown Certified Farmers Market at the Master Gardener Demonstration Garden located at 891 Mountain Ranch Road in San Andreas on the third Thursday of every month from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm through October.
The CalaverasGROWN Certified Farmers Market offers a wide variety of products from local farmers and artisans based right here in Calaveras County. “Local produce is closer to the source, so it is fresher, tastier and more nutritious than produce that has traveled further to reach your plate. Dollars spent at the Market are an important source of income for local farmers and tend to recirculate locally,” emphasizes CalaverasGROWN President, Sean Kriletich.

Eating healthy is easier when you have access to fresh, affordable choices. The market accepts EBT and offers Market Match, which doubles shoppers’ EBT nutrition benefits, enabling them to purchase even more healthy fruits and vegetables. So, if a customer spends $10 of their allotted benefit, they are given an extra $10 in market tokens to spend on fruits and vegetables. This includes P-EBT benefits being issued in response to the current health crisis. You can fine more details about P-EBT at https://ca.p-ebt.org/en/Market Match is made possible by a grant to CalaverasGROWN from the Ecology Center.

Customers can also use their WIC checks and WIC and Seniors FMNP fruit and vegetable checks at the market.
