If four-legged critters are destroying your garden and gobbling up the fruits of your labor, then this is the class from you.  You will learn many useful non-poisonous abatement techniques to protect your garden from voles, moles, gophers, squirrels, and deer.  Topics will include trapping, creating barriers, and deterrents.

In this overview class you will learn:

  • How to identify which pest is damaging your garden
  • Trapping techniques for gophers, moles, and voles
  • About barrier methods to keep critters out of your space
  • Which plants are the most gopher- and deer-resistant

Presenter MG Janice Moody: Janice at one time maintained six acres in Pescadero, primarily by herself, which included gopher and deer abatement.  With the help of about a dozen Cinch traps, she boasts the trapping of over 400 gophers in a three-month period!  She loves to share her tricks of the trade with her fellow gardeners who might view this as a daunting task.
