Nevada County Master Gardeners offer plants for sale during bi-annual event

Plant purveyors take part in the popular bi-annual Nevada County Master Gardeners plant sale this past weekend at the Nevada Irrigation District offices at 1036 W. Main St. in Grass Valley, where the 1.5-acre demonstration garden is located. Fresh plant starts are germinated or propagated on site, and sold to help fund some of the many different programs they take on in the community.

The Master Gardeners will be offering a new training class, which is only offered every two years. The class is rigorous, but trains people to be master gardeners in Nevada County’s climate.
