We may live in a dry climate, but delicious fruits and vegetables, eye-catching blooms and fragrant herbs can thrive in San Diego County’s home gardens — without wasted water. The San Diego Home Gardening Seminar, hosted by the Master Gardener Association, will help the public learn and sharpen techniques for tending bountiful, beautiful and water-wise gardens.

The all-day event is April 2 at the University of San Diego. It will be split into three sessions with a choice of more than two-dozen classes. 

With topics as varied as cooking a gourmet meal with a home harvest, drought-resistant landscaping and growing blueberries, members of the public will find plenty to inspire them at the spring seminar.


Other classes include:

  • Compost: No longer the dirty little secret in the garden
  • How to get the most production from your organic tomato plants
  • Sustainable residential landscape design principles
  • The magic of Australian natives
  • Attracting birds, hummingbirds and butterflies to your garden
  • Cooking with fresh herbs

The Master Gardener Association conducts educational activities in partnership with the County of San Diego and the University of California Cooperative Extension.

Classes fill up quickly, so early registration is encouraged. Register online and see complete program details at
