Harvest Day: Sacramento’s Premier Gardening Event of the Season
This event is designed with the Sacramento-area gardener as the focus. Climate change and diverse urban living spaces are real challenges. Harvest Day is heeding the call—focusing on plants, soil and techniques to make your garden thrive. Master Gardeners in each section of the Horticulture Center—berries, herbs, orchard, vegetables, vineyard, landscape plants and compost—have selected plants and battled bugs unique to this area. And they’re willing to tell the tales! Speakers will feature tips, plants and methods meant to meet your needs. At this fun and social event mingle with dozens of community horticultural groups, shop for garden treasure and picnic from food trucks. Bring your friends, your curiosity and your hat and join us for Harvest Day.

The Sacramento 2025 Garden Guide and Calendar—the 20th anniversary edition—debuts on Harvest Day.
It’s great for gardening notes and/or gift-giving. Cash or check please.
