University of California Master Gardeners of Butte County  kick-off their Spring Workshop Series on Thursday, February 8th  from 10 - 11:30 a.m. 

For more than 30 years of UC Cooperative Extension’s history, UC Master Gardener volunteers have shared research-based home horticulture information with the public.

The first spring workshop, “Seed Starting,” will take place in the Master Gardener's Demonstration Garden at the historic Patrick Ranch, located at 10381 Midway in Durham. In fact most of the workshops will be held there.

Participants can learn all about starting and transplanting tomato and pepper seeds, and how to nurture them  until it's planting time.
A total of 16 workshops will cover topics like Raising Backyard Chickens, Bats, and how to transform your urban landscape into a Wild Garden.

The last workshop will be a tour of the Demonstration Garden at Patrick Ranch on Thursday June 7.
All workshops are FREE with the exception of a supplies charge for the Compost Bin Building workshop on February 21st.
Visit the BCMG website at to see a description of all workshops and to register for classes, which can fill up fast because space is limited.
