American Garden School: Practical Soils + Irrigation

 
ediblegarden_fall+winter.jpg

Why do so many plants and gardens fail to thrive despite our best efforts and intentions? Soil health and irrigation are too often overlooked in our garden planning and maintenance, and can feel overwhelming to take on. Healthy soil creates healthy plants, yet what is healthy soil and how do we create it? Irrigation is essential to any garden or landscape, but how does it all work? Do we till, or can we choose not to? Different plant categories such as vegetables, annuals, perennials, shrubs, and trees each require different approaches to soil development and watering.

Lighting of the Snowmen Holiday Festival

Now in it's 12th year, the Annual Lighting of the Snowmen has become a Sonoma Valley holiday tradition! Mark your calendars now, you don't want to miss the 2016 festivities! 

This year, the Lighting of the Snowmen kicks off with a festival and actual lighting on SATURDAY, December 3rd and the display will remain up through the end of December for all to enjoy! 

The event began in 2004 after David Allen, owner of Artefact Design & Salvage at Cornerstone, discovered hundreds of decorative snowmen at a factory in Boston. The factory, which manufactured the snowmen exclusively, was closing, and Allen decided to purchase the stock to use at the gardens. Each year since then, the snowmen have been arranged into a creative and stunning scene that is different each year.

The festival will feature music, kids crafts, wine + beer tasting, delicious food, festive decoration and more! 

Parking will be available at Cornerstone (until the lots are filled) and then at the Sonoma Valley Airport, located next to Cornerstone (shuttle service will be provided). 

Admission to the festival is FREE and there is a $10 charge for parking. 

Please stay tuned for more details!

Many of us only think of honeybees when we think of pollinators, but did you know there are 1,600 species of native bees in California?! That’s quite a few bees and those bees need gardens. Bee-friendly gardens are flower-filled gardens, and the same flowers that offer pollen and nectar rewards to bees offer us some of the most beautiful landscapes and create an uplifting and inspirational environment that will forever transform your relationship with your yard.

This class is a remarkable opportunity to hear from two of the top people in the field – Dr. Gordon Frankie and Kate Frey. Dr. Frankie, trend-setting and renowned bee-friendly scientist from U.C. Berkeley, will discuss his research on native bees in urban environments, talk about their lives and share some spectacular, eye-opening photos of bees and their habitats. Kate Frey is the Chelsea Flower Show multiple gold-medal-winning designer of pollinator-friendly gardens and a popular garden educator. Kate’s gardens contain a brilliant symphony of color and are sure to delight all who experience them.
