There are many winter chore that you can do now to make spring gardening a wonderful and easy treat. From pruning, mulching, seed starting, and tool maintenance, you’ll find there are many ways to stay busy in the garden over winter. Join us at the San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden on Saturday, December 7 from 1 PM to 2 PM to learn more about keep your garden in excellent shape this winter season.

Kim McCue's family returned to Paso Robles in 1997 so their children could grow up in a small town.  After many years of volunteering with PTA, Girl Scouts, etc., Kim finally had enough free time to enroll in the Master Gardener program in 2012 – something she’d wanted to do for a long time. Kim love all aspects of gardening, with the exception of heavy weeding.  Her home garden includes vegetables, fruit trees, blueberries, succulents, CA native plants, roses and more.  She loves the fabulous people in the Master Gardeners organization, continual learning, and meeting new people at workshops

Suggested donation $5 for members/$10 non-members. Presentation followed by a free docent-led tour in the Garden at 2 PM. For more information call 805.541.1400×304 or education@slobg.org.
