Presented by: Yvonne Savio
Yvonne Savio grew up on a 3/4-acre hillside lot in Pasadena growing year-round fruits and vegetables and flowers with lots of manure and compost and “making do” before it was called recycling or repurposing. She knows what “harvested at the perfect moment of ripeness” means and enjoys enabling others to enjoy the benefits of “growing your own.” For 36 years, she worked for the University of California, conferring with statewide vegetable, fruit, and ornamentals specialists; then revitalizing the Los Angeles County Master Gardener Volunteer Program, teaching 1150 Master Gardeners who then served 1.3 million county residents. Since she retired in 2015, she continues to inspire gardeners, making presentations, and providing monthly tips and blogging on her www.GardeningInLA.net website where she invites everyone to submit gardening events and job opportunities open to the public.
