Fruit Tree Workshop Class January 10

Calling all fruit tree and garden enthusiasts!  The Hanna and Herbert Bauer Memorial Community garden in Woodland will host a fruit tree workshop on Saturday, January 10, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  This outdoor class is free and open to all; no experience with fruit trees necessary.

This class, taught by a Yolo County master gardener who specializes in fruit trees, will help participants select bare root fruit trees for their home orchard.  Participants will also learn how to properly train and trim fruit trees during the winter dormant season to enhance growth and production in spring.  The class will take place in the garden orchard on the west side of the Bauer building at 137 N. Cottonwood Avenue in Woodland, and will include demonstration of various training and trimming techniques.   

Free Holiday Recycling at the County Landfill

Free Holiday Recycling at the County Landfill

Free recycling of residential holiday trees (treecycling) is being offered at the Yolo County Central Landfill from December 26 through January 15, 2015.  Treecycling turns your holiday tree into a valuable renewable and recyclable resource.  

Trees are biodegradable and will eventually decompose to provide essential organic matter.  Trees to be recycled should be free of all ornaments, flocking, tinsel, garland and lights.  There is a limit of two trees per resident for free recycling.  

Old electronics, such as computers, TVs and monitors, and paper, plastics, cans and  bottles can also be recycled every day at the landfill, located at  44090 County Road 28H in Woodland.  By recycling your holiday tree, gift boxes, and bottles and cans from holiday celebrations, you will help reduce waste in our landfill and do your part in putting waste in the proper place!
