What does your pet like to do in your garden? Chase balls? Dig? Chew? Or maybe your furry family member likes to flop down in your newly planted flower bed? No matter how your dog or cat enjoys your garden, we all want our pets to be safe.

All pet owners should be aware of how to keep their pets safe in the garden by eliminating plants and gardening additives that are toxic. Attend the UCCE Master Gardens of Yolo County talk “Pet and Plant Safe Gardening” in the Winters Community Library Teaching Garden (708 Railroad Ave., Winters) on Saturday, Sept. 24 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., and learn how to identify toxic plants, mulch, herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers.

This talk, led by Master Gardener Treva Valentine, will also present strategies to keep your garden safe from damage caused by your curious and active pet.

This locally organized talk is one of the way The Master Gardeners of Yolo County provide University of California research-based information and assistance to home gardeners through free publications, classes, plant sales, and more.
