California Native Plant Sale
Saturday, April 1, 2017
9:00 am – 1:00 pm
At the Falkirk Greenhouse 


The UC Marin Master Gardeners, in co-sponsorship with the Marin Chapter of the California Native Plant Society, invite you to their annual California Native Plant Sale.


These are wonderful native plants, healthy and ready for planting, while we still have some rain to help them set down roots. Also available will be useful books, lists of bee-friendly plants, posters, and lots of extremely knowledgeable folks from the California Native Plant Society to help you choose your plants, chat, and answer your questions.


There will be a free talk by Horticulturist and favorite speaker Charlotte Torgovitsky on What Plants Attract our Native Bees? Her talk will correspond with our Native Plant Sale’s focus on plants that supply nectar and pollen for our native bees.




Pre-Mother's Day Succulents Sale
Saturday, May 13, 2017
9:00 am - 1:00 pm
At the Falkirk Greenhouse


We propagated the plantings from the Falkirk Succulent Gardens and the Mediterranean Garden.
We sell 4” containers of succulents, 1 gallon sized, and a few larger. And we’ll be selling our usual charming (mostly small) containers, which we've filled with succulents… they make GREAT Mother's Day Gifts, by the way.  Drop by and snap one up! The containers go very fast so come early!
The gardens are looking good… drop in and breathe the fresh air. Thank you rain!


We love it when members of the public join us to work in the gardens. We have two or three working with us now and they are fabulous. Join us to work in our demonstration gardens or enjoy them during your lunch hour. We work in the gardens the Second Saturday of each month in the mornings, and Monday mornings usually from about 10:00 am -12:00 noon.

Please contact me if you have any interest in working with us in the gardens. It’s fun!






Stay tuned for the Continuing Education Talks and Demonstrations Series at Falkirk!

Falkirk offers Continuing Education Talks and Demonstrations,
along with the opportunity to join with other
UC Marin Master Gardeners and community members to work in the gardens.
It's a wonderful way to learn, gain hands-on experience,
meet other Master Gardeners, and simply enjoy the gardens
created by you and the UC Marin Master Gardeners.

Get your hands dirty and join the Falkirk team!
