Vegetable Gardening in a Time of Drought

Vegetable Gardening in a Time of Drought Online

Spring is the time to plant your summer vegetable garden. At the same time, drought is upon us. Most of California was dry-farmed before irrigation systems were common. Learn about what crops can tolerate little to no water, and bring back some tried and true practices. Hear about ways to grow more food using the same amount of water by incorporating techniques like hydro-zoning, mulching, cover cropping, companion planting and regularly checking your irrigation system.

Coordinated by the City of San Mateo's Sustainability Program and the San Mateo Public Library, and presented by Master Gardeners Lisa and Kathleen Putnam. Lisa holds a BS in Agricultural Economics from UC Davis; she operates a small sustainable organic farm in Woodside and is a UC Master Gardener (1999) and Master Composter (2010). Kathleen is a professional organic vegetable gardener, UC Master Gardener, and ISA Certified Arborist serving the Mid-Peninsula region, with a degree in Environmental Horticulture from City College of San Francisco. Both teach regularly at sites including Lyngso and area garden clubs.
