The UCCE Tuolumne County Master Gardeners will be holding an Open Garden Day at the Demonstration Garden on Saturday, August 3, from 10AM – 1PM. The Demonstration Garden is located at 251 S. Barretta Street in Sonora, (Cassina High School Campus.) Open Garden Days are held on the first Saturday of the month, from February through November, rain or shine.

This month we will have two presentations: Summer Pruning with Dave Provost from Morris Nursery in Riverbank. Dave will be on hand to explain the mechanics and benefits of summer pruning. Although it may seem to be the “off season” for pruning, there are definitely benefits to proper summer pruning; and Preserving Your Harvest with Betty Axiak, Master Food Preserver and Master Gardener. Betty will help you understand how easy it is to can, pickle, ferment, dehydrate and freeze food safely at home using research-based methods.

Activities begin at 10:30am

(Topics Subject to Change and it will be held rain or shine)
