Presenter Master Gardener Janice Moody: Janice at one time maintained 6 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 3-month period. She loves to share her tricks of the trade with her fellow gardeners who might view this as a daunting task.
