Sonoma County Fair
Each year, the UC Master Gardeners of Sonoma County have an opportunity to share with Sonoma County gardeners sustainable gardening practices integrated into practical demonstration at the County Fair.
The demonstration garden is installed in one week, but the design and planning involves a team that must integrate good gardening practices, cope with the space limitations, bring all the plants and hardscape, and make sure that it stays looking fresh for the duration of the fair—which tend to be some of the hottest weeks in Sonoma County.
In 2023 we partnered with the Sonoma-Marin Water Saving Partnership on a demonstration garden focused on home landscape water conservation. Click here for a link to the Sustainable Landscaping Resources that were shared as part of our joint Fair demo garden.
