Free Public Workshops!
Family Harvest Workshop!
Date/Time: Saturday, October 8th at 10:00 am - 12:00pm
Location: Demonstration Garden, 1033 W. Main St. Grass Valley
For the conclusion of the series, “Family Fun in the Garden”, the Master Gardeners of Nevada County are presenting a celebration of fall. This will be a way to celebrate the garden, and the work done with the children during the series. These family workshops have been designed for parents, grandparents, friends, and children, to bring children ages 4 and older to our Demonstration Garden to learn a number of aspects of vegetable gardening.
The fall celebration will consist of a number of garden-related activities, including:
- Making fall wreaths
- Pumpkin decorating
- A garden-scavenger hunt
- Winter garden planning and planting
- Make herb bath-bombs!
Adults must stay at the entire workshop and participate with their children. Bring water, sunscreen, hats and gloves and be ready to play in the dirt.

Wildfire will always be a part of the California landscape, but it is possible to design and maintain homes and property in ways that reduce vulnerability to wildfire. A key component of this protection is the proper placement and maintenance of plants around the home.
Here are some ideas on preparing home landscaping.
