 The rains have finally come, just as the irrigation was repaired! 

Isn’t that the way of it... 

We at Falkirk welcome the rain and are planting away, having waited for just the right time to put in new plants.  The California Native Garden section of the Mediterranean Garden is putting in Sticky Monkey, Toyon and any number of other beauties.  We take December off in terms of our Second Saturday Work Party but are in the gardens most Mondays from about 9:00-12:00, if anyone needs volunteer hours and wants to join us. 

And we will be offering our annual hands on learning experience in January:

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!
