Yolo Basin Foundation will host “Going Native,” a workshop to learn about incorporating native plants into home gardens. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 16, and is part of the Gaggle of Gatherings, a yearlong series of tours, workshops and parties to raise money for the foundation.

Gardening coach Patricia Carpenter will teach and host the workshop in her gardens, where people can see first-hand what has been successful. Participants will learn how to best incorporate native plants into their existing gardens or plan for a larger makeover.

Carpenter will start with the basics of preparing the site, give pointers on choosing the right native plants for this area, and advise on proper planting techniques. All participants will go home with plants of their own and the knowledge to start the transformation of their yards.

Lunch will be served in the gardens. This workshop is appropriate for novice or advanced gardeners.

“Going Native” costs $75 per person, and all proceeds go toward the “Discover the Flyway” school program. Registration is online at http://www.yolobasin.org . Click on “Gaggle of Gatherings” and follow directions to make a reservation.

For more information, call Yolo Basin Foundation at (530) 758-0530.
