When will you begin creating the gardens?
We plan to begin working on one of the gardens in spring, and will keep you posted on our progress through this blog as well as our Facebook, Instagram and twitter accounts (@UCMGStanislaus). Our Sensory and Pollinator Gardens will be open to everyone to visit, and used during classes and workshops on drip irrigation, low water use plants, pollinator plants, and more!/h4>/h4>/h4>

Are you on the fence about becoming a UCCE Stanislaus County Master Gardener? We encourage you to apply so you can learn more about the program. You'll receive an invitation to our orientation meetings (one held in the morning, the other in the evening) when you can decide if you want to interview. We will take applications as late as next week.
As mentioned in earlier posts, you don't have to be an expert to become a Master Gardener. You'll learn from experts, and make new friends along the way. Master Gardeners don't know everything, but they do know where to look for the answers to your questions. Watch this video to learn more.

We plan to create a series of gardens the community can visit for inspiration on the following topics:
- Water-wise plants
- California native plants
- Plants for pollinators (hummingbirds, bees, butterflies)
- Vegetable gardens
- Fruit tree orchard
We won't be able to create this garden without your help. We hope you will consider giving to our project. Please save the date of December 1, 2020. Announcements and a video coming soon about our Learning Landscape.
