Water-wise plants will be offered for sale from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, July 19, at the Gibson House Museum, 512 Gibson Road in Woodland. In addition, there will be a question-and-answer session in the newly renovated herb garden.

Instructions on how to create and care for succulent gardens will be given at 10 a.m. Hundreds of herbs, succulents, native plants and flowering perennials that have been propagated by the volunteers are available for early summer planting. UC Master Gardeners will be present to answer the public’s questions.

Additionally at 10 a.m., attendees may take a workshop to learn how to make a succulent garden to take home. With a $5 material fee, patrons will be provided a 6-inch pot, the proper soil mix and at least five succulents of their choice along with instruction on care and fertilizing of drought-tolerant plants.

Sign up now for an 11 a.m. to noon “Walk with Warren (Roberts).” The superintendent emeritus of the UC Davis Arboretum will conduct walks among three historic trees on the grounds, one magnificent oak being more than 300 years old.

There will be docent led museum tours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There also will be blacksmith demonstrations, children’s games and activities and refreshments.
