There is only about a month and a half to stop by the Master Gardener's information table at Home Depot in Fairfield, before Oct 1st, which will be our last time for this year. We hope to be back again April 2019, but you still can contact us if you have any gardening questions.
Our e-mail is email@example.com, or call the hotline 707-784-1322.
If by chance you don't know who the Master Gardeners are, we are all volunteers under the UC Cooperative Extension Program that have gone through weeks of training on different gardening topics.
The information table at Home Depot is different from those held at farmers markets. First, there are no fresh fruit or vegetables. There are plants that produce these. But what the Master Gardeners at the information table do is help you by showing you the different soils, what would be best for your garden project. Whether it is vegetables, flowers, succulents and more. We can show and tell you about the IPM program (Integrated Pest Management) the less toxic and safer pest control.
We can walk the inside or outside garden with you and show you some plants that might work for your garden project.
We also have free take-home pest notes on the “good bugs” as well as the “bad bugs”. As well as other gardening information.
We are at Home Depot every other Saturday from 10am -2pm. Look for us either in the inside garden or the outside garden depending on the weather.
You can also sign up to receive our blogs and a quarterly pamphlet “Seed for Thought”. Master Gardeners write articles for each of these. By the way, these are free as well as any information we have.
If by chance you ask us a question that stumps us, yes, it happens, we will take your information find the answer and get back to you. No question is too small, stop and ask or just to say “hello”.
