French BroomMaster Gardener Series
Invasives: More Than Just Bugs and Blooms
Thursday, May 30
7:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers

Invasive plants brought in from other parts of the world represent a significant challenge to the natural environment of our country and our home landscapes in Marin. When a gardener thinks of an"exotic invasive," it is usually an insect or a plant. These are, indeed, awful threats, but there are exotic invasive diseases, aquatics, and mammals that also pose important threats to our native species and environments. Based on research done by the UC Cooperative Extension staff, Marin Master Gardener Bob Mauceli will discuss some examples of these alien threats, and what California is doing to deal with them. This program is co-sponsored by Sausalito Beautiful and the Sausalito Library.

Edible Flowers: Beyond the Beauty
Thursday, June 27

Have you ever wondered if you can eat your flowers? In some cases, you can! Many of these edible beauties are easy to grow over the course of a season. Join Jenine Stilson to learn which flowers or parts of flowers are safe to eat — and some that you should avoid. We will cover ornamentals, herbs, flowers of fruits and vegetables, and even weeds, and give you creative ideas on how to use them. Jenine became a UC Marin Master Gardener in 2014 and has been a leader of the Edibles Guild for the past three years.
