Irrigation and Pesticide Training for Spanish Speaking Gardeners

In conjunction with the Department of Pesticide Regulation and the University of California Cooperative Extension, William Baker & Associates is conducting training for Spanish speaking gardeners in the areas of irrigation and proper pesticide use and safety.  Classes are taught entirely in Spanish.  To date, over 300 gardeners have been trained in ten separate classes.  On April 22, 2014, we had 48 attendees at the San Marcos Community Center in San Marcos.   Instructors were Jaime Bayona and Lea Corkidi.  Two continuing education credits were earned by DPR license and certificate holders.
