Home gardeners are invited to a workshop Saturday on “Your Sustainable Backyard: Landscaping in California” with Debra Lee Baldwin, photojournalist and author of “Designing with Succulents,” and Bob Perry, landscape architect and author of the new “Landscape Plants for California Gardens.”

These plant experts will discuss sustainable landscaping and the unique plants best adapted to California gardens. Following the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to shop for plants at the Arboretum Teaching Nursery.

The workshop, sponsored by the California Center for Urban Horticulture, will take place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the ARC Ballroom on the UC Davis campus; the special plant sale will be from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Arboretum Teaching Nursery. The fee for the event is $35 and includes morning coffee and lunch.

For more information, contact Missy Borel at (530) 752-6642 or mjborel@ucdavis.edu, or visit ccuh.ucdavis.edu.

Guide dog puppy raisers host sale

Those interested in learning more about raising a puppy or becoming a puppy-sitter are welcome to stop by.

History buffs talk about ghost town

The Dixon Historical Society will meet at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Methodist Church of Dixon, 209 N. Jefferson St.

Bil Paul, local historian and writer, will give a then-and-now talk on the town of Maine Prairie: its establishment, life, demise and remains. Paul has done original research which, together with maps and photographs, will provide new insights into the local ghost town.

Audience participation and interaction are welcome. Society business will be transacted at the meeting, and refreshments will be served.

Join Arboretum Superintendent Emeritus Warren Roberts for a lunchtime stroll in the UC Davis Arboretum’s native plant collections on Wednesday, April 13. Enjoy the early spring weather, learn about the Arboretum’s collections, see spring wildflowers in bloom, and get a little exercise.

The group will meet at noon at the Buehler Alumni & Visitors Center, on Old Davis Road at Mrak Hall Drive, across from the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts. There is no charge for the tour. Parking is available for $6 in Visitor Lots 1 and 2 and the Mondavi Center parking structure.

DMTC will present ‘How to Succeed’

The winner of seven Tonys and the Pulitzer Prize in 1961, “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” comes to the Davis Musical Theatre Company stage April 22 through May 15. Following the advice of a book titled, “How to Succeed in Business” (voiced by “Good Day Sacramento’s” Don Geronimo), a young window cleaner, J. Pierrepont Finch (David Holmes), begins a meteoric rise from the mail room to vice president of advertising at the World-Wide Wicket Company.

However, Finch’s dubious and uncompromising business ambition endangers not only his career but also a budding romance with secretary Rosemary Pilkington (Kay Hight).

Directed and choreographed by Rand Martin, with musical direction by Steve Isaacson and Chris Congdon, “How To Succeed…” features hits that became standards in the 1960s, including, “I Believe in You,” “Happy to Keep His Dinner Warm” and “The Company Way.”

Performances will be at 8:15 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2:15 p.m. Sundays at the DMTC Performing Arts Center, 607 Peña Drive in Davis. Tickets are $18 general, $16 for students and seniors and $14 per person for groups of 10 or more. Purchase tickets at http://www.dmtc.org or (530) 756-3682.
