The UCCE Master Gardeners of Lake Tahoe, local volunteers working on behalf of the University of California Cooperative Extension in Davis, will hold the June Day Jamboree and Plant Sale on June 13 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Lake Tahoe Community College (LTCC) Demonstration Garden.

Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer your questions about gardening at Tahoe. Whether it be growing vegetables, learning which plants attracts butterflies and bees, finding out how to keep a garden growing with less water, or how to manage pests without using harmful chemicals, you will find answers at this event.

This event is both educational and a fundraiser for the local Master Gardener program. The funds raised through the plant sale will help offset program costs such as printing materials, seeds, soil and other materials used in teaching demonstrations.

And with Master Gardeners every day is Earth Day, so we encourage people to bring their used plant containers that are in good condition to the sale, as they can be reused for our demonstrations and future plant sales. People can also drop off plant containers at the South Tahoe Refuse

Company Transfer Station in the bin provided, located at 2140 Ruth Ave., throughout the month of June.

Tickets for the upcoming Tahoe in Bloom Garden Tour, set for July 25, will be available for sale at the June Day Jamboree at a cost of $20.

Local ukulele players will be on hand between 11 a.m. and noon to add a bit of whimsy.
