Earth Day Celebration

Earth Day is a great time to celebrate our planet and to learn about ways we can help make a difference. Celebrate Earth Day this year at ACRA/ARCD Community Garden.  Help cleanup the garden, take tours of the Heritage Rose Garden, plant a fruit tree, or take home some wildflowers to plant in your own garden.  There will also be a Master Gardner there providing planting advice.

The Earth Day Celebration will take place on Saturday, April 23rd, 2022 from 10 am to 2 pm.  The ACRA/ARCD Community Garden is located Chichizola/Cuneo Ranch at 1324 Jackson Gate Rd in Jackson, California.  This event is sponsored by Farms of Amador, the UC Master Gardener Program, the Foothill Conservancy, and the Mother Lode Land Trust.  For more information, please contact the Amador County Recreation Agency (ACRA) at 209-223-6349.
