Master Gardeners' Spring Plant Sale
Saturday, April 7, 2018, 8 am-11 am
It's time for spring planting, and we have plants to sell! Twice a year, we hold our popular plant sales that fund the Master Gardener program. We have great plants at reasonable prices, and we only sell plants that we'd grow ourselves at our own Tucson-area homes.
You may want to come early. There is usually a line, and the most popular plants sell out fast! The University of Arizona Cooperative Extension grounds are at 4210 N Campbell Avenue. There is additional parking if you enter on Roger Road, East of Campbell Avenue.

19th Annual Master Gardener
Home Garden Tour
Saturday, April 14th, 2018 - 9 am - 3 pm
Art and design are the focus for the self-guided tour of four gardens in midtown Tucson. 
You will be delighted and inspired to see how the challenges of urban gardening can offer great opportunities and small spaces can be transformed with art, and whimsy. We’ll even explain how to raise chickens!
And of course there will be great plants and garden designs to amaze you. It 's not far off, so please mark your calendars for this not-to-be missed springtime event. More information about the tour and $15.00 advance tickets can be found here.
