Our Events

Smart Gardening Fair

Each Spring, the Smart Gardening Fair brings together local garden-related businesses, water districts, purveyors of fine foods, great musicians, artists and craftspersons, wineries, educational organizations and the public for a day of family fun and entertainment. And along the way, visitors learn about sustainable gardening, the wise use of water, landscaping with drought-tolerant plants, integrated pest management, and many other topics that can help make a difference in our children’s future.

Garden Tour
Every year, visitors enjoy strolling through the magnificent gardens featured on our inspiring Garden Tour. It’s a chance to see Master Gardener sustainable gardening techniques in action. Sales of tickets fund our educational efforts.

Fall Fest
In October, join Master Gardeners and the community at the Master Gardener Demonstration Garden in Watsonville. This is a family day of learning that also features a plant sale from plants raised by Master Gardeners.
