Central Park Gardens will host its annual Open House and Plant Sale from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26. The gardens are at the corner of Third and B Streets in downtown Davis at Central Park.
Water-wise California natives, perennials, herbs, succulents, bulbs and vegetables, many of which grow in the gardens, will be available for purchase along the eastern walkway of the gardens. Click here to view the inventory.
Knowledgeable UC Master Gardeners of Yolo County will staff the plant selection stations to help in the choice of the “right plant for the right place” for a garden in our region of the valley. Master Gardeners will also be throughout Central Park Gardens to answer questions on the mature plantings and show examples of the plants available. Look for the “Ask Me, I’m a Master Gardener” name tags!
Volunteers from the UC Davis Arboretum Pollinator Education group will host an information display to educate visitors about gardening for pollinators.
From its early beginnings in 2007 when the challenge of renovating the Central Park Gardens was accepted by a group of community volunteers and Master Gardeners the garden has now, because of the careful selection of plants appropriate to our regional climate, grown into a place of beauty, a haven for native bees, birds and beneficial insects to be enjoyed by all. Please join us at our celebration of 12 years of success and community involvement at Central Park Gardens.
Central Park Gardens of Davis is a nonprofit all volunteer organization that welcomes community donations. Anyone can become a “friend” by making a donation to the Friends of Central Park Gardens. Proceeds from this event support the purchase of new plants, tools and supplies to maintain and improve the garden as an inspiring and educational public resource.
