For anyone who had landscaping that experienced burn related trauma due to the Carr Fire or recent local fires and needs replacement trees, shrubs or plants, the Shasta College and the Shasta Master Gardeners will be having a plant giveaway on March 28 from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. at the Shasta College Farm.
Each family is welcome to come pick up 10 or more plants even if they have received plants from Shasta Master Gardeners and Re-Grow Shasta project in the past. Volunteers have started plants and trees and have hundreds to be given away. Many of the plants are California native plants and trees.
Master Gardeners will be on site to answer questions about erosion control, replanting and landscaping. Assisting the Master Gardeners with this project will be the local chapter of the California Native Plant Society.
