Free Edible Landscaping Workshops
The Ventura County Master Gardener program is presenting a series of "Edible Landscaping" workshops at many locations throughout the county.
The series is a great opportunity for home owners to receive UC science-based education on how to include edible plants into an existing landscape. Edible plants will not only give your home landscaping visual enhancement, you can eat them, too.
You can't beat the cost, the workshops are free!
Join our hard-working Master Gardeners and choose a workshop located in a city near you. Workshops will be presented in Ventura, Oxnard, Camarillo, Ojai, Santa Paula, Simi Valley and Thousand Oaks.
