I am a master gardener in Napa County and this past week we had a class on the resources for California gardeners in the drought year.
This is mostly information for N. California. It is posted for

One interesting thing - we are the only Mediterranean Climate in the world who has an obsession with lawns - it has long been my goal to deLawn California!!
