Co-presenter UC Master Gardener Kathy Fleming: Kathy loves creating a balance at her Peninsula home by growing culinary herbs and flowers in containers and her perennial landscape for more than 30 years. She uses the herbs and edible flowers in many recipes, either fresh and/or dried, and loves sharing them with her friends and neighbors. Kathy has been a UC Master Gardener since 2006 and has always enjoyed speaking and sharing ideas about this passion.
Co-presenter UC Master Gardener Cindi Morris: Cindi’s affair with plants began when she was in the fourth grade. She used to visit Ferry Morse Seed Company where her father worked. She loved peaking into the labs and seeing all of the experiments, and the best part was picking out some seed packets to take home to grow. Cindi was always amazed that you could plant a small seed and it would grow into a wonderful flower. Over the years Cindi has continued her interest in growing plants, and today as a UC Master Gardener she loves assisting home gardener with their gardens.
