In addition, the Master Gardeners offer research-based advice on planting, growing and caring for gardens and lawns and provide educational training programs to children in schools and adults throughout the year.

Every other year, the Master Gardeners open their private home grounds to the public showcasing a variety of the most interesting gardens allowing us to share how to plant for sun, shade, drought tolerance and privacy screening. This year includes a mix of seven distinctive gardens. Each will offer visitors new ideas to take home and adapt to their personal space.

A rain date is scheduled for June 14.
