Join us for our gardening workshops, which are designed to follow key seasonal tasks to help you keep your garden healthy, beautiful and water-wise. Gardening workshops are taught by Placer County Master Gardeners, City of Roseville Water Efficiency staff and other industry experts who have the know-how to help you keep your landscape sustainable and beautiful.

All workshops are hosted at the Utility Exploration Center (1501 Pleasant Grove Blvd) unless otherwise noted. All gardening workshops are for ages 14 and up and cost $6 for Roseville residents or $8 for non-residents unless otherwise noted.  Call us at (916) 746-1550 to register for the Green Gardening Workshops.

Our upcoming gardening workshops:

March and April gardening workshops have been canceled. Visitor health and safety is our number one priority in everything we do at the Utility Exploration Center. Following guidance from the Placer County Health Department regarding the COVID-19 virus, we will be canceling all workshops through the end of April. 

We are taking steps to refund registered participants' workshop fees. Depending on your payment method, this process may take up to eight weeks. No need for you to initiate the refund. We will contact you if we need any information from you to complete the process. In the meantime, we are working with the instructor to gather helpful resources and handouts from the workshop and will be happy to email them to you in the near future. Please watch for those emails. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate through this time.
