 Drought Information for the Home Gardener

As you well know, home gardeners are going to have to deal with drought this growing season.  The UCCE Master Gardener Program in Solano County wants you to be informed and ahead of the curve.  We have created a special page titled Drought Information for the Home Gardener on our Master Gardener page. We hope to update this information to enable you, the home gardener, to enjoy your garden-even in drought.
