April 22, 2018 is Earth Day! We’ve decided to celebrate all month long by offering green gardening classes every Wednesday evening in April. These galactically incredible classes promise to be out of this world! (or at the very least they will be entertaining and instructive).  All classes will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will run 1 – 1 ½ hours. Davis residents that attend a class can enter to win prizes, including reusable shopping bags, waterless car wash kits and worm castings. Register for a class by contacting the Public Works Department at PWWeb@CityofDavis.org or (530) 757-5686.

6:30 PM at the Davis Senior Center Activity Room, 646 A Street
Join Ellen Zagory, Director of Public Horticulture for the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden, for a galactically amazing class on water-wise landscaping with native plants.

April 25: May the Trees Be With You
6:30 PM at the Redwood Building, 1001 Anderson Road
Trees provide clean air, beauty, wildlife habitats and they reduce energy costs associated with heating and cooling buildings. Join us at a class to learn more about the trees that surround us: how to choose the right trees, how to prune, mulch and water trees, and about the habitats that our urban forest provides to local wildlife.
