Mark your calendars!
We have scheduled a couple of events this summer we’d love for you to attend.
Parking Lot Sale:
Sunday, August 31, 8 am to 4 pm
We have cleaned out our storage sheds and have found plenty of treasures that we’re sure you’ll love: display fixtures, shop worn items, wheelbarrows, household items, and much, much more. Make us a stop on your county-wide garage sale map! Sunday only, 8 am to 4 pm. (Sorry, we won’t have any plants for sale and the nursery will be closed.)
Saturday, September 6, 10 am to 2 pm
We’ve teamed up again with Irl Everest, Weaverville’s Mr. Tomato, to offer a free tasting of heirloom, novelty and traditional tomato varieties. Nursery staff will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. Stop by any time between 10 am and 2 pm to discover your new favorites!
Grass Valley Creek 4-H Club: This is the tenth consecutive year Lewiston youth have participated in this Arbor Day celebration.

We look forward to watching these trees grow throughout our communities.
A Flowering Plum planted by the Trinity Garden Club at the Highland Art Center.
Every year on or around March 7, the birth date of renowned horticulturist Luther Burbank, many Californians plant trees in celebration of Arbor Day.
Community groups in Trinity County have really come to embrace this tradition over the years and Trinity Nursery continues to support their efforts by donating trees.
We do ask that the tree be planted on or around Arbor Day on public lands (such as a park or school), and that there is a plan for caring for the tree, including a regular watering schedule.
Quantities are limited and we’d like to reach as many local communities as possible with this offer, so stop by the Nursery with your tree-planting ideas!
Some of the many varieties of fruit you can grow in Trinity County: Honey Crisp, Red Delicious, Jonagold, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith and Fuji Apples. D’Anjou and Bosc Pears.
Mark Your Calendars!
Trinity Nursery has teamed up with Trinity Homegrown Foods (THF) to provide a workshop titled Growing Your Own Fruit.
The workshop will cover topics including:
- superior quality, taste and nutrition of home grown fruit;
- varieties of fruit trees and berries that grow well in Trinity County;
- the importance of rootstock for local soils;
- site and plant selection;
- pollination requirements; and
- young tree care including pruning and bareroot planting tips.
This will be a great opportunity for you to learn more about growing your own food. Steve will be presenting and folks from THF will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about how their organization can help you get more food out of your garden.
This free event is open to the public. Refreshments will be provided by THF. The workshop will be outdoors, so dress appropriately. If you would like to sit during the presentation, please bring your own chair. In case of rain, the workshop will be moved to the Trinity High School cafeteria.
What: Growing Your Own Fruit Workshop
When: Saturday, March 1, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
