Efficient Water Management

Tips for home & garden water savings 

drought key

Marin is currently drought free due to the recent abnormally high rains (Atmospheric Rivers). Yet drought - or at least a long hot and dry summer - are predicted, and we don't know what will happen this season in Marin. 
Efficient water usage is as critical during our rainy season as during our recent drought -- efficient water management is a constant California commitment. 
Learn more on MMWD's Drought Information page. Thank you for your cooperation!

The Marin Master Gardeners are a dedicated, trained group of volunteers with a shared love of gardening and horticulture.  Through community service and educational outreach, they provide home gardeners and community organizations with the knowledge and skills to create a healthy environment for Marin County.  Since 1986, Marin Master Gardeners have worked as non-paid staff members of the University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE), answering public inquiries and providing information on all areas of plant health and gardening practices.
