BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Sept. 13 marks the start of a new series of free workshops offered by the University of California Master Gardeners of Butte County. The workshops will tackle the topic of winter vegetable gardening just in time for the changing seasons.   

The Master Gardeners are highly-trained experts, and are part of the University of California Cooperative Extension Program. Twice a year they offer a series of workshops that focus on important gardening skills for the home gardener/landscaper.

Other topics in the Fall series include growing fruit trees, garden tool care, worm composting, preserving olives and how to build a water feature for your garden.  

The workshops run through Dec. 11. Most of them are held in the Master Gardener Demonstration Garden at Patrick Ranch located at 10381 Midway, between Chico and Durham.  Some are held in "Pat's Barn" at the Ranch, and some take place at private homes.

There is no charge but space is limited, so registration is required.  Visit the Master Gardener website HERE to view the list of workshops and to sign up.
