Over the Garden Fence – Talk with Master Gardeners at the Mariposa Farmers’ Market – Sierra Sun Times

Over the Garden FenceJune 14, 2021 – The Farmers’ Market began its annual schedule (every Wednesday, May through October) beginning May 19 from 5:00 P.M. – 6:30 P.M., at the bottom of 6th Street and Stroming Road adjacent to the Mariposa Creek Parkway in beautiful downtown Mariposa.

Locally grown fruits and vegetables — many organic — are offered from various vendors, but that’s not all. Crafts, prepared goods, information booths, and more can be found under different booth canopies.

One such recurring information booth is peopled by the UCCE Master Gardeners of Mariposa County. Trained volunteers of the UC Master Gardener Program provide practical and accurate horticultural information to home gardeners. Regardless of whether your inquiries are about growing fruits and veggies, landscaping, wildfire mitigation, ornamental plants, water-saving strategies, soil improvement, etc., the Master Gardeners will be there to advise you.

Our volunteer staff promotes successful and sustainable gardening practices by providing home gardeners with research-based information from the University of California and other academic or government institutions. If the Master Gardeners at the information booth cannot answer your questions on the spot, the staff can later access an extensive library, University of California Agricultural Advisors, university research, and a microscope for researching home gardening problems. They will research your issues and contact you with answers.

Additionally, the volunteers there will have information about events and community projects that the Master Gardeners participate in. Consider learning about the Mariposa Creek Parkway Demonstration
