Preserving your harvest is the theme of our facilitated discussion for this month.  Now that the tomatoes and squash are in full production you need ways and means to store your bounty for the future.  Canning, drying and freezing are simple and effective methods to preserve fruits and vegetables.  Using some specific techniques you can improve flavors and retain vitamins.

Find answers to your home gardening questions, including plant and pest problems.  When the garden is not open, home gardening assistance is offered by UCCE Master Gardeners through the help line at: 209-754-2880.  The public may leave a message regarding a problem and a UCCE Master Gardener will return the call.


The Demonstration Garden is a project of the UCCE Calaveras County Master Gardeners whose primary goal is to educate the public about home gardening.  Proceeds from plant sales support the UCCE Master Gardener’s education programs and maintenance of the Demonstration 

On Open Garden Days, Master Gardeners give demonstrations and garden tours. They will also answer home gardening questions as well as assist in identifying and diagnosing plant and pest problems.
