For anyone who faces the challenges of gardening on a slope, with poor soil, drying winds and marauding deer, the Marin Master Gardeners will offer a talk entitled, “Hillside Gardening 101.” The free one-hour program will be held at the Landmarks Art & Garden Center, March 5 at 10 a.m.

Master Gardener Mary Warner will draw on her years of experience gardening on a precipitously steep slope in Corte Madera. She will recommend plants that can succeed in specific microclimates, soil types, sun and shade.

Tiburon’s Ferry Plaza

The entire community is invited to come and Walk Their History!

Walk Your History, a special biennial community celebration, is a FREE event designed to educate the community about the fascinating history of Belvedere and Tiburon.  Over 800 people attended the 2011 Walk Your History event, and this year’s event is expected to bring out even more!

Over 50 volunteer and Living History docents will bring history to life on the walk to Lyford’s “Hygeia,” the land of health.  The walk up Paradise Drive, pass the Lyford Stone Tower, and on to Mar East and Lyford Cove, will be dotted with costumed characters from the early 1900s and feature the historic home “The Castle.”  Walkers will enter the homes and gardens of historic houses along the walk, enjoying astounding views along the way.

The self-guided walk begins and ends at the Ferry Plaza, where participants can enjoy gourmet coffee and healthy treats in the morning, and then enjoy delicious BBQ lunches at noon while listening to music and taking in the views.

Sponsors (“History Makers”) for this event include the City of Belvedere, Town of Tiburon, Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society, Tiburon Peninsula Foundation, Belvedere Community Foundation, and Belvedere Tiburon Recreation.
