September 13 - Tuesday, 6:00-9:00 pm: Fall Mountain Gardening & Appreciation of Fall Colors - Are you yearning to have a garden that celebrates the beauty and richness of fall colors? Join us for this informative workshop that will provide you with ways to create a showy fall garden. Learn how to select plants that will thrive in your garden and what to avoid. Many of the gardening activities you perform now will dictate how beautiful your garden will be in the spring. We’ll cover fool-proof bulbs, which trees, shrubs, and perennials have the most colorful leaves, persistent berries or super late blooms. We’ll also discuss winterization. This class is at Sierra College Truckee Campus and requires pre-registration.

September 24 - Saturday, 10:00-11:30 am: Fall Colors for Your Garden – See the trees, shrubs, and perennials with the most colorful leaves, persistent berries or super-late blooms. We'll cover the chemistry and the natural artistry of a showy fall garden.  Fall can be our longest season of color.

October 1 - Saturday, 10:00-11:30 am: Fall Gardening - October is a time to plant, transplant and divide trees, shrubs, bulbs and perennials. Collect seed, propagate cuttings, fertilize, mulch, prepare soil and prepare new beds. There is a lot to do to ready the garden for next year's growth.  Deciduous trees and shrubs put on as much as 80% of their annual expansive root growth in the fall, after they lose their leaves.  Fall IS for planting.

October 8, 2011 -  Saturday, Truckee Fall Color Tour - IF there is interest.  Rob and Eric will lead a leisurely stroll from the Villager to Brickletown and Downtown and back through Old Town, looking for and discussing the beauty of fall. 

October 15, 2011 - Saturday, Winterizing Your Mountain Garden - A good class NOT to miss if you want the best results for spring.
