MADERA – The gardening public is invited to come and learn from Master Gardener Karen Petryna about ways to slowly convert your yard to more drought-tolerant landscaping, as she presents a Native and Drought-Tolerant Plant Workshop sponsored by Madera Master Gardeners.
Native and drought-tolerant plants can reduce your use of water, pesticides, and fertilizer which will save you time and money, and help you enjoy your yard even during drought, according to Petryna and the Master Gardner program. Native plants also provide food and shelter for native wildlife, attracting pollinators and birds to the garden.
The free workshop will be held Saturday, August 15, 10 a.m. to noon at Madera Community College Center, Room R-3A, 30277 Avenue 12, Madera, CA. Free parking is available in Lot C near the Three Sisters Demonstration Garden.
For questions, call (559) 675-7879, extension 7210, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit the Master Gardeners website to learn about other free events and services. Events are also posted on Facebook.
