The 2016 Roseville Greener Gardens Tour and DIY Expo takes place Saturday, May 14 from 9am to 3pm at the Roseville Utility Exploration Center in Mahany Park. The self-guided Greener Gardens Tour features local gardens reflecting some of the best examples of sustainable living in the region. Tour these All-Star, River-friendly gardens, featuring participants in Roseville’s Cash for Grass Rebate Program and gardens that highlight a variety of water-wise and River-friendly principles.
At the free Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Expo, learn to create, install, and care for your water-efficient, River-Friendly garden from the experts — University of California Master Gardeners, EcoLandscapers and other industry professionals. The Expo features a variety of local vendors offering water-wise and eco-friendly products, services, climate-appropriate and California native plants and everything else you need to get started. Tour the Greener Gardens Photo Gallery to view current and past All-Star gardens. Don’t miss demonstrations and workshops about using water efficiently in your garden, creating healthy soils for healthy plants and changing your unused lawn into a beautiful, water-efficient garden for you, your family, and friends to enjoy all year long!
Event goers who attend the May 14 Greener Gardens Tour and DIY Expo will have a chance to win a piece of art made by local sculptural artist Phill Evans. If you win, that artwork joins a family of notable art pieces found in the region. For more than 40 years, Evans has been adorning buildings, landscapes and public gathering spaces – both regionally and nationally – with works of art made of metals, glass, stone and wood. Inspired by people, places and things, Phill’s curiosity is charged by personalities, historical perspective, geophysical observations and balancing design with engineering science. Find out more about Phill Evans.
