April Gardening Tips
from Nevada County Master Gardeners
Planning:
By Lyn Muth or herbs 2 to 3 weeks after the last frost date. At lower elevations, on sites with warm exposures, sow the first sweet corn, cucumbers, summer squash, string beans and basil. Toward the end of the month set out pepper starts. Plant containergrown ground covers, shrubs and trees now, although fall is a better time to plant. Plant them in native soil with no amendments. Plant summer perennials and bulbs. Set out annuals at the end of the month for summer color. continued on next page... Differentiate weeds from plants sprouting in the landscape. Plan the most efficient methods to manage weeds that compete with desirable plants. Rotate vegetable beds to avoid diseases and insects that can survive in the soil. Don’t plant the same or closely related plants where they have grown for several years.

Planting:
Check the climate map for the spring freeze guide. Set out early-ripening tomato varieties

Maintenance:
General: After the last frost, fertilize roses, fallplanted ground covers, and shrubs. Apply an acid fertilizer around camellias, rhododendrons, azaleas and spring-blooming bulbs after they bloom. Start feeding container plants with slow-release products. Check roses for rust, a fungus that causes rust-colored pustules on the undersides of leaves. Dispose of all diseased leaves and spray plants with a sulfurbased fungicide. Water early in the morning and avoid wetting the foliage.

aphids persist in intolerable numbers, rinse them off with water or insecticidal soap. Handpick snails and slugs or put out traps and barriers. See www.ipm.ucdavis.edu for less toxic ways to remove pests from your garden and lawn.

Trees:
To prevent sunburn, paint a 50/50 mixture of exterior white latex paint and water on young tree trunks.

Ornamentals:
Do not remove leaves on spring-blooming bulbs such as daffodils, hyacinths and tulips until they are completely dried. Deadhead rhododendrons and pansies. Do not disturb new rhododendron buds under this year’s flowers.

Fruit:
Trellis trailing blackberries; weed, fertilize and mulch upright varieties. Fixed copper will control brown rot on stone fruits. Apply between one and four applications, starting at bud swell and continuing through petal fall may be necessary, depending upon spring rainfall. In dry springs, only one or two applications may be necessary. Sulfur will control powdery mildew on sulfur-tolerant varieties of grapes and the first application should be made at 2 to 4” of growth. See www.ipm.ucdavis.edu Pest Note #7494 for more information on Powdery Mildew on Fruits and Berries. ❖

Insects:
Watch for beneficial insect predators: lady beetles, lace-wings, syrphid flies, leather-winged beetles and bigeyed bugs that devour aphids and whiteflies. If

Empire Mine hosting Mother’s Day of fun
Living history, cottage tours, food and music part of event
By Kim Palaferri
Nevada County Marketplace

n the past, Empire Mine State Historical Park was the place to try your luck in searching for gold. From the opening of the mine in 1850 to 1956, gold found in the park was abundant - 5.8 million ounces of abundance. On May 12, the park will be open to an abundance of mothers and their families as it hosts its 2nd Annual Mother’s Day Event. The event will have many of the same attractions as it inaugural year including, music, fair type food, tours of the original Bourn Cottage, and the Living History event. Park docents will play the parts of historical figures to tell stories from the lives that William and Agnes Bourn lived and also George and Libby Star, who were onsite managers for the mine during the Bourn era. Robert Jennings, Empire Mine volunteer and director for non-profit for Empire Mine Historical Park said that exciting things are in store for this years Mother’s Day Event. Along with the living history scenes, food vendors will be set up selling picnic style foods, including hotdogs from Sweenies Weenies, ice cream from Lazy Dog Ice cream, and a mobile coffee truck will be there keeping people

refreshed. Jennings said that no food will be allowed into the park, but picnic benches are available outside the park if families want to bring their own. Jazz music is on tap throughout the day.

Mothers and Grandmothers get in free for the day
Last year’s event attracted approximately 750 people. This year, Jennings said they are hoping for a good turnout. Empire Mine’s Mothers Day Event will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The park’s special event entrance costs $7 for 16 years and older, $3 for ages 6 to 15, and 5 years and younger get in free. But that’s not the only one who enters free on Mother’s Day. Grandmothers get in free for the day. Visitors must bring cash or check to enter. During some of the peak gold profit years between 1869 to 1920 William and Agnes Bourn owned

the mine until it was acquired by Newmont Mining, and ultimately the State of California purchased it to add to their parks collection. These days, though there could still be gold, the park is open for historical mine yard tours, the original Bourn Cottage tour, 12 miles of hiking, horseback

riding, and mountain biking trails, and a living history event. The park also serves as an event center for weddings and has booked 50 marriage ceremonies already for this year. ❖

By Amy Lobenberg
t seems that spring has sprung and summer is waiting just around the corner. Foothill residents of all ages venture outdoors in search of activities that let them enjoy the fresh air.

Spaceship, waterfall, hobbit house and more – garden tour has it all
One home features replica mining town, golf course, maze and dinosaurs
By Gloria Young
Nevada County Marketplace

eautiful landscapes are a staple of spring garden tours. But this year’s Soroptimist International of the Sierra Foothills’ tour goes beyond that. Six gardens, reflecting the theme “20 years in Review,” showcase green thumb expertise at its best as well as a flair for imagination. Each site stands out in its own way, co-chairwoman Linda Sanderson said. Two are in Penn Valley, two are in Grass Valley and two others are in Nevada City. One of the Penn Valley homes has nearly 20 acres filled with unusual sights. “(The homeowner) has done all the landscaping himself,” she said. “He has five ponds.” Beyond the gardens around the home, there’s a ninehole golf course and a maze. And that’s just the beginning. “There’s a Jurassic Park (with) life-size (replicas of) dinosaurs,” Layered Viburnum is featured in this Sanderson said. yard that is part of the Sierra Foothills “Next to that is spring garden tour scheduled for

Nevada City’s Deer Creek Inn, a bed and breakfast, will showcase its extensive hardscaped gardens and creek.

“Dug into a hill, there’s a mining shaft with cars and tracks that go back into the ground (several) feet,” Sanderson said. The town also includes a two-story hotel, post office, saloon, Boot Hill cemetery and a hanging tree. A 1950s trailer park is complete with Air Stream

The second Penn Valley garden on the tour has a waterfall and stream, with bronze statues of elk and other wildlife. “It was professionally landscaped and it is beautiful,” she said. “There are lots of trees.” In Grass Valley, tour participants will view a small garden that beautifully illustrates what can be done with limited space. The second locale has more of country ambiance, with a stream and a hobbit house built into a hill. “That’s where we’ll have our refreshments and raffle,” Sanderson said. Nevada City’s Deer Creek Inn, a bed and breakfast, will showcase its extensive hardscaped gardens and creek. “It’s a real serene beautiful feeling,” she said. The final garden is

Families can embrace a Mediterranean diet

H

ealthy eating is a top priority for many families. The search is always on for foods that taste good, appeal to the masses and provide adequate nutrition. The benefits of a Mediterranean diet have been touted for years. New information has emerged that reveals the potential of the Mediterranean diet to reduce a person’s risk of heart disease, including heart attack and stroke. According to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, a diet rich in fish, nuts, fruits, vegetables, olive oil, and red wine can significantly reduce a person’s risk of developing heart-related ailments. The study was the first large, randomized clinical trial to evaluate the effects of the Mediterranean diet on car-

is composed of recipes from regions that border the Mediterranean Sea. There is a heavy emphasis placed on vegetables, lean meats, whole grains, and olive oil. Dairy, red meats and sweets are heavily limited. Those interested in adopting a Mediterranean diet should realize it is largely a lifestyle change. Start by selecting fish and white meats over red meats. Fish can be enjoyed at least three times per week. Then incorporate more nuts, legumes and omega-rich oils into the diet. Supplementation with olive oil can include up to four tablespoons per day. Aim for eating three servings of fruit and two servings of vegetables daily. Men and women should consult with a doctor before modifying their diet and their kids’ diets. ❖

Innovative Partnering Helps Everyone Thrive in a Down Economy
Organizations collaborate to do more for the community
Organizations and individuals instinctively know that we have a much better chance of coming up with effective solutions to real world problems if we work together, rather than apart. Leveraging collective resources can maximize impact, especially when times are tough. We can all agree that we wish politicians would collaborate to solve our nation’s problems. We can’t change them, instead we can demonstrate how the best collaborations work. But first, obstacles to working together need to be overcome. Nevada County Habitat and See Jane Do would like to announce a partnership that will help bring about successful and beneficial collaborations for others seeking to leverage resources and relationships for the greater good. These 2 organizations created a successful alliance 2 years ago and found a recipe for success that is ready to be shared and replicated. In their work together, including other individuals and organizations, they have conquered the obstacles and have succeeded in completing several successful projects that benefit the community, the people and organizations involved, and served to further both of their missions…. And they had lots of fun doing it! You are invited to join them on April 18, 2013 as they kick off a series of collaborative efforts, including short term project and learning modules that will help others achieve the same success. “We have a proven method of awakening connections that we want to share. This event will light a spark that will ignite many more productive partnerships in this community we all love” says Elisa Parker, CEO and Founder of See Jane Do. “We were blown away by how this collective effort connected over 400 people from all over the country to a common cause. This alliance has resulted in growing our donor and volunteer database by 18% in a 3 month timeframe. These astounding results have inspired us to collaborate more than ever,” shared Debbie Arakel, Executive Director of Nevada County Habitat for Humanity. The Soiree is happening at the Center for the Arts on April 18th at 6:30pm. Admission is free. Individuals and organizations should attend. Why?

Build a blueprint for forming successful alliances. Use tools and technology that increase engagement success Inspire creative collaborations. Spoiler alert – you might find them where you least expect! The answers are in the conversation – join the conversation. Be a part of a hands-on collaborative activity – Make and enjoy a collaborative meal. Whether you are a person looking for connections and involvement, or an organization wanting to create flourishing partnerships, you will want to come, have fun, and learn how joining forces can change the world! About Nevada County Habitat for Humanity Nevada County Habitat for Humanity (NCHFH) was organized in mid 1995 by various community, government and church members to address the growing and recognized need for affordable housing in Nevada County. In the past years, NCHFH has grown from a handful of concerned citizens to a grass roots organization with a 12 member governing Board of Directors, a roster of 25 Standing Committee Members, over 60 committed volunteers and 500 loyal financial donors, all committed to achieving our mission of providing simple and decent affordable homes for hard-working local families. To date NCHFH has completed 23 homes across Nevada County providing affordable homeownership for 31 adults and 66 children of qualified families. NCHFH broke ground in the Fall of 2010 on a 16-home “Heritage Oaks” development their most ambitious project to date, and have completed 4 homes of the 16.
