Are you looking for tips to grow delicious tomatoes this summer, or tips on how to control pesky insects? The Master Gardeners of Colusa County will offer their knowledge to patrons at the Colusa County Fair.
Available June 8–11 at the Colusa County Fairgrounds in Etechepare Hall, the Master Gardeners invite everyone to stop in and browse the plant displays, ask some questions, and participate in a scavenger hunt.
“We will have 10 plants hidden across the fairgrounds and a prize will be awarded to those who find them all,” said Master Gardener, Gerry Hernandez.
Hernandez said that the Master Gardeners group will be available to provide information on water saving tips, provide a list of tree recommendations for your area and water wise plants, how to identify good insects, and much more.
“We will have insect collections on display from the Bohart Museum at UC Davis,” said Hernandez. “We will also have a fun craft for children and their families. Make a lady bug or bee fan to keep you cool as you enjoy the fair.”■
