Monthly Meetings

November 13TH MEETING

The speaker will be Ramona’s own Marsha Cook speaking about  Earth Friendly Gardens.  She has lived in Ramona since 2001,  retired from public service in 2017 and spends time enjoying art and gardening with  California Friendly plants, including Mediterranean varieties and  California native plants.  She became a Master Gardener in 2019. Marsha enjoys gardening
Principles of Earth Friendly Gardens  include: selection of climate appropriate plants, caring for the soil,  responsible pest management, protecting wildlife, conserving water and  water quality, conserving energy and protecting air quality, reducing  waste and growing food with California Friendly plants, including Mediterranean varieties and native plants. 


For residents who are already well on their way and practicing these  principles of “Earth Friendly Gardening”, they may want to complete a  checklist/survey about their practices, to self-certify that they meet  the minimum criteria. Residents who complete the check list and meet the  minimum requirements can print a certificate from the Master Gardeners  webpage. https://www.mastergardenersd.org/earth-friendly-gardens/

 For those who might enjoy purchasing and posting an “Earth  Friendly Garden” aluminum sign on their property the purchase price  is $25, with proceeds from sale of the signs helping to support Master  Gardener programs such as school gardens, community gardens, memory care  gardening, and so much more!
