Gardening with California Native Plants
January 1–March 11, Wednesdays 10–11:30am
How can you make your garden more waterwise and more attractive to pollinators and other wildlife while fostering a real sense of place? Would you like to be a neighborhood trendsetter? Learn how to accomplish these goals by adding California native plants to your landscape. You'll learn how to choose the right plants as well as tips for planting, irrigating and maintaining them. You'll also be introduced to a variety of native annuals, perennials, bulbs, shrubs and trees that do well in the Chico area. 

Firewise Landscaping 
April 8–May 6, Wednesdays 10–11:30am
Join the Butte County UC Master Gardeners for a course on rethinking your landscape design and maintenance routines to incorporate best practices for adapting to our changing climate. Some of the topics include considerations for California habitats, yard maintenance, garden design using defensible space guidelines, natural regeneration, erosion, mulching, fire ecology, post-fire care of trees and land, and characteristics of plants that provide the best fire resistance.

Public Workshops

At the Demonstration Garden and various locations will begin in February.
