What a wonderful way to spend Mothers Day!
Visit the beautiful gardens of the Capay Valley. Come join in the delight of spring flowers, strolling through many of the Valleys’ finest gardens. See how California native shrubs are integrated into lovely annual and perennial gardens. Talk to the gardeners themselves and learn the secrets of their success. New gardens have been added this year as well as several points of interest along the drive though the valley. Many of the gardens are also showcases for agricultural production in the Capay Valley. You are welcome to picnic in the gardens – delicious box lunches will be for sale at the Guinda Grange Hall using local ingredients. Heirloom roses, art and plants will also be for sale at the Grange Hall. Some of the gardens will have musicians and artists performing amongst the flowers!

The Capay Valley
The Capay Valley, located west of Woodland on Highway 16, is an agricultural valley. Farms produce organic fruits and vegetables, orchards produce almonds and walnuts, vineyards produce wine grapes, and rangelands supports cattle. There are several small towns, beginning with Esparto at the southern end of the Capay Valley, continuing through Capay, Brooks, Guinda, and then to Rumsey at the northern end. The Capay Valley is home to just over 2,000 proud residents, many of whom are supported by our strong agricultural community.
