I supervise and provide training for the local master gardener program. I work with volunteers to provide community education in home gardening and landscaping. I also provide education to the commercial green industry.
My main areas of research include educating the community about waterwise gardening including xeriscape techniques, plant selection and plant care. I also have an emphasis in providing education on fire-resistant plant material and fire-resistant landscaping techniques. A third area of emphasis is regional specific gardening for the Intermountain West including High Desert Gardening and season extension.
