Master Gardeners will lead four free workshops Saturday at Woodland Community College’s Horticulture Garden, in conjunction with the college’s spring plant sale. WCC is at 2300 E. Gibson Road in Woodland.

On the agenda are:

* Wise Gardeners Use Water-Wise Plants, 9-9:30 a.m., Room 402, taught by Leslie Olaya. Learn to add plants to your garden that make a big splash, but are low water users and thrive in the Sacramento region. This presentation will include California native plants as well as plants from other parts of the world with a similar climate.

* Tomato-Growing Tips, 9:40-10:10 a.m., Horticulture Garden, taught by Linda Magrum. Learn how to properly plant tomato seedlings and grow them into healthy, productive plants.

* Lawns and Droughts, 10:20-10:50 a.m., Horticulture Garden, taught by Sandra Schickele. With California facing one of the worst droughts in a century of record-keeping, some people are rethinking their lawns. How can homeowners reduce the amount of water needed to keep a lawn? Should they consider reducing the amount of lawn space or would it be better to remove it altogether? This workshop will take a look at these questions.

* Straw Bale Gardening, 11-11:30 a.m., Horticulture Garden, taught by Jim Schulte. Learn how to garden in a straw bale, examining what plants work best and how to make the most of this compact and environmental method of gardening.
