The Hanna and Herbert Bauer Memorial Community Garden, sponsored by the Yolo County Health Department, is hosting three free gardening classes in April on the west side of 137 N. Cottonwood Ave. in Woodland.
From 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 12, Steve Radosevich, a Yolo County Master Gardener, will present a workshop on composting and using worms in your garden. Radosevich will give away worms (if desired), as well as composting buckets to Woodland residents.
Immediately following the composting workshop, Laurie Green, registered dietitian and head of nutrition services at the Yolo County Health Department, will host a children’s planting activity from noon to 12:30 p.m. Kids may get their hands in the dirt to learn how to plant fruits and vegetables and learn how gardens can help families eat healthy food. The children also will get some garden education goodies to take home.
From 10 to 11 a.m. Thursday, April 17, the Master Gardeners of Yolo County will teach a basic gardening class in Spanish. The class will cover how to plant summer/fall plants, create a planting schedule and use fertilizers, as well as provide an introduction to pesticide-free gardening.
Pre-registration for all classes is required. Contact Rebecca Tryon at the Yolo County Health Department at 530-666-8640 or [email protected].
