"I would like to suggest than in addition to actually physically planting, pruning, mulching, and harvesting
in your garden, that this might be a good time to learn more gardening tips, tricks, and techniques.
I start most days with some stretches and exercises and while doing that, I watch You Tube videos.
I am learning a lot.  There are videos on any topic you can think of, so why not take advantage."
~ Pat Boyd





The 
first of TVGC’s Gardening Booklets is available for sale for $5 each. 
The booklet lists trees that grow readily in the Temecula Valley, along with beautiful color photos,
and much information about each species and a location where you can see a real tree of each variety. 
These beautiful booklets make great gifts.
