Garden Fair > Free events will help amateurs with horticulture

The Los Alamos County Master Gardeners will host a garden fair, 9 a.m. to noon, June 8, at their demonstration garden on Central Avenue, across the street from the county library. Tours of the garden, plant sale and information on three garden topics will be offered to the community.
There is no cost for attending this event. Docents will be located throughout the garden to talk with visitors about the diverse garden designs and answer questions.
Three workshops will be offered, also at no cost. At 9:30 a.m., “Bug Mugs-America’s Most Wanted Pests,” will be presented by Horticulturist and County Extension Agent Carlos Valdez. This will provide an opportunity for people to identify the insect that may be harming a garden, as well as an opportunity to identify the good bugs.
The public is invited to bring any insect they are wondering about to have it identified. At 10:30 a.m., master gardeners Kimberli Tanner and Lee Builta will present information on Gopher Management.
At 11 a.m. Carlos Valdez will be back to hold a Plant Clinic.
The public may bring questions and, if possible, plants and Valdez will help you identify what the plant needs, or if it is getting too much of something. The plant sale starts at 9 a.m. and will consist of plants grown by master gardeners.
