Here in California we have an amazing resource that I want to make sure you know about! It is known here as ANR or the Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources and is comprised of a statewide network of University of California researchers and educators dedicated to the creation, development and application of knowledge in agricultural, natural and human resources. In other words, they do the research and all you have to do is take advantage of it!

They provide a wealth of information for our farmers, but also our home gardeners. You have got to check some of this out! The books they sell can't be beat, plus they offer a ton of free resources you simply must read!


The California Master Gardener Handbook
It is a whopping 700 pages--the definitive guide to gardening in California. All for only $30!


Drip Irrigation in the Home Landscape
This easy-to-use reference guide answers common questions about components, materials, design, installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting. If you're considering a drip irrigation system for your garden, for $5 you need this guide -- don't go to the hardware store without it!


Browse all the FREE PUBLICATIONS from 21 pages about Slugs: A Guide to the Invasive and Native Fauna of California to 6 pages about Patch Budding: A Convenient Method for Top-Working Olives.
