The UC Master Gardeners will be busy this summer with outreach and education events throughout Ventura County. Some of their efforts will include:
The Master Gardeners have prepared a free educational speaking series this summer at the Goebel Senior Center. The Goebel Senior Center is located in Thousand Oaks next to the Grant R. Brimhall Library. You do not need to be a senior to attend the classes.
- All About Roses – Saturday, June 23rd
- Orchids – Saturday, July 28th
- Sustainable Garden – Saturday, August 28th
- Wildlife, Birds, and Butterfly Gardens – Saturday, September 22nd
On Saturday August 18, the Master Gardeners will hold a Home Garden Workshop. This event will be held in Santa Paula, at the beautiful UC Hansen Agricultural Center. The theme of this workshop will be “Planning and Growing A Cut-Flower Garden, and Creating Beautiful Floral Arrangements”. There is a $25.00 fee to attend the workshop.
The Master Gardeners will also be at the Ventura County Fair. You can find them in the landscape design section of the fairgrounds. Their booth will be staffed several hours per day.
The Master Gardener Helpline is staffed Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 1:00 to 4:00. This is a great opportunity to get one-on-one assistance. The helpline provides gardening support to the public by phone at 645-1455, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or in person at 669 County Square Drive, Suite 100 in Ventura. If planning to come by in person, you may want to call first to verify a Master Gardener is available.
