2018 Master Gardener impact in California
- taught fire-wise landscaping practices in communities throughout California. Concerned residents engaged with our program through workshops, websites and Help Desks. This year, 45% of our clientele used the Help Desk system, seeking follow-up support and information from our trusted resources.
- inspired 66% of water conservation workshop participants to start using or improve their use of low water-use plants for their landscape. Selecting plants adapted to our Mediterranean climate not only saves water for other precious uses, it means less dry and dead plant matter in our landscapes.
- influenced 69% of pest management workshop attendees to monitor for weeds and 53% to remove or not introduce invasive plants. Being cognizant of weeds and invasive plants supports the health not only of our home landscapes but also our wild spaces including forest understory and grazing lands.
