Harvest Day

Join us on Saturday, August 1, for Sacramento's ultimate gardening event!

It's a gardener’s dream day featuring fabulous speakers, spectacular demonstration gardens, a grape tasting, food trucks, plant and gardening-related products from vendors, and numerous educational tables. Explore the orchard on a self-guided tour and see the new,  space-saving fruit-tree espalier area. The composting and vermicomposting (worm composting) demonstration area is popular with adults and children. Ideas for the home gardener are unlimited at Harvest Day.

Shop for unique gardening merchandise at our Marketplace (cash and checks only) and take time to visit the neighboring Fair Oaks Community Garden. Best of all are the dozens of UCCE Master Gardeners on site, plus a Plant Clinic, to answer gardening questions.

It will be a wonderful day. Plan to join us!

Saturday, August 1, 2015    8am to 2pm
