Lucky us, we live in a botanical paradise and have access to classes that can turn us into master gardeners – well-informed, experienced, ecologically sensitive caretakers of our back and front yards. UC sponsors Master Gardener programs┬áthis summer in San Francisco and San Mateo Counties that cover herbs, fruit trees, edible gardens, botany and plant taxonomy, soil science, sustainable landscaping and weeds. All around the Bay Area Sloat Nurseries has rich programs including free classes on worm composting. If you just want to be sincerely local check out Bay Nature whose books and supplies will guide you into gardening with only native plants. Keep looking, every locale here flourishes with similar programs.
