Marin Master Gardeners 25th Anniversary
The Marin Master Gardeners are celebrating their 25th anniversary with work parties.
On October 13, 2010, the reality was greatly savored as about a hundred senior citizens of The Redwoods thanked Master Gardeners for installing the Habitat Garden outside Health Care Services. Residents and their families now have a patio area in which to relax, surrounded by buzzing, sipping, and skipping pollinators attracted to the Habitat Garden.
On the crisp fall Saturday morning of November 6th, 61 Master Gardeners gathered on the grounds of Falkirk Cultural Center in San Rafael to hold their second of three 25th Anniversary
Celebratory Work Parties. Falkirk, a 19th century country estate, was built in 1888 and is currently owned by the City of San Rafael. Master Gardeners have had an active presence at the Center since 2007, and the San Rafael Park and Recreation Commission has just issued a commendation to Marin Master Gardeners to extend gratitude and thanks for extensive contributions of time and money to enhance and preserve Falkirk.
A third work party is scheduled for March 26, 2011, to install a medicinal herb garden at Marin Art and Garden Center.
