(Woodland, CA) – Attention Yolo County gardeners and garden enthusiasts! The Hanna and Herbert Bauer Community Garden is hosting a free “Gardening 101: soil, water and fall planting” class on Saturday, August 2, 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. in the garden adjacent to 137 N. Cottonwood Street in Woodland.

This class, taught by the David Linebarger, garden intern and graduate from the UC Davis sustainable agriculture department, will help participants understand the basics of creating good soil, watering techniques that help conserve water and maximize benefit to the plants, and how to prepare for planting their fall crops. No gardening experience is necessary and all are welcome to attend. Participants will also have an opportunity to harvest fresh produce being grown in the demonstration area of the garden.

“Our community garden program is committed to offering garden-based technique and nutrition classes to help the community grow fresh food and live healthier lives,” said Yolo County Health Services Director Jill Cook.

The class will meet at the picnic tables in the garden which is on the east side of the Yolo County’s Herbert Bauer, M.D. Health and Alcohol, Drug & Mental Health Building (137 N. Cottonwood Avenue) in Woodland. Participants are encouraged to bring water, sun protection and a bag for harvested produce.
