The warm weather has arrived, and so have the pests! By now you've probably noticed a few munching on plants in your vegetable garden. If you are looking for solutions, we suggest taking our free Pest Management in Vegetable Gardens class at Turlock Community Gardens on Saturday, June 17, 2023 at 9:00 a.m*.
During this class, you'll learn to identify pests that plague warm season vegetable garden crops like tomatoes, squash, and peppers. You'll also take home colorful and handy reference cards called Quick Tips to help you easily identify pests while you are out in the garden. We suggest you bring a chair, water, hat, note pad and pen (if desired) and wear comfy shoes.
Turlock Community Gardens
Turlock Community Gardens was a project that was "born" in 2020 and in just a few short years has become an amazing place for the community. The garden is located at 4105 Crowell Road in Turlock at the back of the property. Read more details at https://www.turlockcommunitygardens.org/

Learn about how to compost at home! Reduce your carbon footprint & recycle kitchen/garden scraps. This workshop is a great opportunity to hear from an expert and ask questions, plus one lucky person is going home with their own compost bin!
Let's share cuttings, rooted plants, extra gardening supplies, seeds and any tips and tricks to help out our fellow plant enthusiasts! We will be doing a round robin with wristbands. If you don't have anything to bring, you are still welcome to take items home. There is always more than enough to share, especially extra perlite!
Rock Painting Station
Decorate a rock to take home or gift to the garden. Paint, brushes, and rocks will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own.
Turlock Community Potluck
Bring your favorite dish or just bring yourself! Enjoy a slice of pizza while exchanging tips/tricks. It's a great way to meet neighbors, network and have some fun.
As a reminder, TCG asks children to be always supervised and for everyone to be mindful not to disturb the garden beds. They are lovingly maintained by different families and groups.
