Classes will be held on Mondays, October 8, 15, 22 & 29, from 10:00 am to noon. Space is limited to 40 students.
The cost for all 4 classes is $50, and that includes all materials.
(The tuition will go towards expenses and supporting the MGP. Master Gardeners are volunteers and are not paid for their time.)

Here is the class schedule:

Week 1- The Basics: soil, water, sun, journal, gardening vocabulary, ants & Integrated Pest Management.
Week 2- Garden to Table: vegetables, fruits & herbs.

Week 3- Best Plants For Riverside County: drought tolerant & natives. 

Week 4- Putting It All Together: gardening design & resources.

Classes will be taught by Master Gardeners.
Each student will be given a binder, handouts, and a copy of Western Municipal Water District’s So Cal Yard Transformation book.
Light refreshment will be provided, and each class will feature a raffle for a plant from the MG Grow Lab.

More information, including how to sign up, will be included in our July eblast.
