Welcome to UC Master Gardeners of Nevada County
Free Workshops at the Nevada County Fair!
August means it’s time for our wonderful Nevada County Fair. There are so many landscape and garden-related activities at the fair – with fun for all ages. The Master Gardeners will be part of the fair again this year. Our booth will be set up in the Family Farm area (formerly AgSperience), behind Treat Street. Stop by to learn answers to those nagging home gardening questions, or to see the demonstration of the compost pile. Also, we will offer several workshops each day of the fair.
The popular “Little Sprouts” flower painting will be available for children each day of the fair, from 11:30am – 1:30pm at the Master Gardener’s tent. Children and families are invited to assemble and paint a wooden sunflower stake to take home to their own gardens! (The wooden flowers are cut by our own Master Gardeners, and are ready to paint.)
Gardening in Drought Resources are Here!
The workshop, Gardening in Drought was presented July 30 at the Demonstration Garden. Below are the 2 printed handouts as references with resources for further information.

Wildfire Preparation in the Home Landscape
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.
