Solano County UC Cooperative Extension
On July 1, 2014, we became the University of California Capitol Corridor Multi-County Partnership, serving Sacramento, Solano, and Yolo Counties!
This allows us to serve the capitol corridor with greater efficiency and access to more advisors and programs.
Portions of our website will be changing and we appreciate your patience during this transition.

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.
