Enjoying a Healthy Garden: Organic Controls for Pests and Diseases

Speaker: Pat Welsh
Horticulture/organic pest control


 Pat Welsh has been the primary spokesperson for Southern California Gardening since the 1970s.  Her two books, Pat Welshs Southern California Gardening:  A Month -by-Month Guide first published in 1991 and updated to Pat Welshs Southern California Organic Gardening in 2009 are the definitive books for gardening in our region.  A gardener from a very young age in England, Pat embraced gardening in Del Mar where she continues to make her home.  She was the first garden editor of San Diego Home/Garden magazine.  In 1981 she began televising a nightly news segment on the local NBC affiliate.  This was the first regularly televised garden show to appear on nightly news in the United States.  Her helpful gardening tips created a loyal following. Pat planned, wrote, and taped her original programs five days a week for five years.  Her gardening books, in publication over 25 years, are still available on Kindle.  She continues to write the Southern California monthly gardening tips for Sunset Magazine and is actively engaged in writing and answering questions at her blog,

In addition to writing, speaking and gardening, Pat has been an artist her entire life.  Her book, The Magic Mural and How it Got Built: A Fable for Children of All Ages, details her work on the wall mural in front of the Del Mar Public Library on Camino Del Mar.
