The Garden Walk program sends UC-certified Master Gardeners to homes within MMWD’s service area to conduct personalized landscape assessments and offer water-wise advice for beautiful, healthy landscapes. The walks are a great way for MMWD customers to learn more about sustainable Bay-Friendly gardening practices such as water-efficient irrigation, healthy soil management and good plant choices for our climate.
The program’s fifth birthday was celebrated at a lunch recognizing this year’s Garden Walk volunteers. So far this season, 36 volunteer Master Gardeners have shared their time and expertise visiting 149 home gardens in central and southern Marin. Since the program launched, 125 Garden Walkers have visited almost 800 gardens.
