About the event

Gardening with Natives Practicum - How and When to Plant Native Plants

Heritage Garden Program Fall Workshop Yakima County

Join the Heritage Garden Program for our Fall 2023 practicum workshop!  Are you a novice with native plants and unsure where to start? Do you have a Heritage Garden Plan already but need some planting advice?  Are you an old pro with tips and tricks to share with your fellow gardeners?  There’s knowledge to be gained from all skill levels!  First, we’ll cover some of the basics of how and why to plant native species and strategies for a successful planting.  Then, we’ll get outside for some practical application by planting a public demonstration Heritage Garden at the Yakima Valley Trolley Museum.  The goal for this garden is to require no water once established.  All are welcome to this community event!

Saturday October 7th 10 AM -12:30 PM

Where: Yakima Valley Trolley Museum - 306 W Pine St, Yakima, WA

If you can, please RSVP here so we have an estimate of how many to expect.
