Growing Opportunities

It has been an exciting year for Master Gardeners Growing Opportunities (MG-­‐GO) committee particularly for those volunteering at Girls Rehabilitation Facility (GRF, a minimum-security juvenile rehabilitation center in Kearny Mesa for girls 14 -17 years old). In the past year, we've provided horticulture education to over 1,200 youth and adults involved in the juvenile justice system.

At GRF the Growing Opportunities gardening program - a collaborative undertaking of UCCE San Diego County Master Gardeners, the Probation Department, and San Diego County Office of Education's Juvenile Court and Community Schools - is blossoming into an inspiring model of hands-on horticulture education and sustainable gardening practices in unlikely urban environments.

November in the Garden

Soon the holidays – and hopefully some stormy weather – will pull gardeners indoors. That's why it's important to finish fall's many tasks as soon as possible. Plant bulbs, trees, natives and perennials and sow wildflower seeds so all get maximum benefit of a good soaking. Also be sure to adjust irrigation systems to suit the changing weather. Before nurseries switch to holiday merchandise, purchase some cool-season annuals to brighten the shorter days ahead. And when family and friends gather to feast, remember to toast nature's remarkable bounty.
