Event Details


If 4-legged critters are destroying your garden and gobbling up the fruits of your labor, then this is the class for you. You will learn many useful non-poisonous abatement techniques to protect your garden from voles, moles, gophers, birds, squirrels, and deer. Topics will include trapping, creating barriers, and deterrents.

Presenter UC Master Gardener Janice Moody:  Janice at one time maintained 6 acres in Pescadero, primarily by herself, which included gopher and deer abatement.  With the help of about a dozen Cinch traps, she boasts the trapping of over 400 gophers in a 3-month period. She loves to share her tricks of the trade with her fellow gardeners who might view this as a daunting task. 

Presenter Master Gardener Nancy Grove:  Nancy Grove gardens on the mid-Peninsula, with a focus on water-wise perennial plantings, small fruit orchard, and raised beds. She raises essentially all of the produce needed for her family, canning and preserving to extend the harvest year-round. A founding member of the UC Master Gardener Program of San Mateo and San Francisco Counties, Nancy enjoys giving talks about various aspects of gardening, learning a great deal from her audiences in return.

Directions:  Highway 101, Holly Street exit, Redwood Shores exit, left at Shoreway Road (stop light).
